There are several ways to check that a certain element is not found.

If the target is a string

You can use the standard assertion command.
Please click here for further information.

If the target does not have a string

If you want to check that an element does not exist on a page

You can use a [JS Step].

var selector = "<TODO: REPLACE SELECTOR>"; //Please replace
var element  = document.querySelector(selector);
if (element) {
    throw new Error('Error: There is an element that shouldn’t exist (' + selector + ').');
}

If you want to check that an element is not displayed on a page (the element exists in the invisible state)
