I’m creating a List Workflow in SharePoint Designer 2010. In the first step I have a conditional under which I am trying to add a Start Approval Process step: About to enter the next action...
When I try to insert the next line, the blinking orange line pauses, then resumes blinking. I get no error, but the action is never entered: Nothing happened.
This is for a workflow on the dev server. I'm attempting to mimic this working workflow in my own dev environment: It works on my machine.

Any ideas?

Apparently, SharePoint Designer 2010 needed to be restarted more than one time, and needed to wait a number of hours (approx. 15 hrs). This action is working now.
