I am trying to locate the parent of the current node using XPath (or any other method).  In my example, the leaf node is easily identifiable, but I am trying to locate the parent "td" node - nothing seems to work:
    ..
    //..
    ../td

The main group of the locator locates the leaf node, then I try to add a child group filter and specify the XPath thinking that the current context will be the node I located above (see attached image).


Any suggestions?

Well, I was able to get something done with a coded step:

Pages.PegaDesignerStudio.CloseSpan.Parent<HtmlTableCell>().MouseClick();

I don't love it, as it makes the test hard to read, but I am unblocked.  Seems like this might be a common scenario, will enter an enhancement request.
