    Hello,

    I'm trying to copy and paste a step within a Telerik Test Studio test.  What I need to do is change the original element used for that step to another element.  I can change the verification, but can't seem to figure out how to change the original  element targeted.  Is it possible?

    Thanks.

    Hello Brian,

    You can change the element behind the step through the Primary Target step property. Please review the help article about step properties here.

    I hope this helps!

    Kind regards,

    Hi,

    We have used this functionality with mixed results.  The element is correctly updated in the test step when we make a change to the step.  When navigating back to the Project tab, we see that every test now appears in boldface as if those tests had changed.  The specific element we changed is only used in the one test where we changed it, and not every other test.  This is frustrating especially when using TFS to house our scripts because Telerik will 'check out' every test for edit when that is not necessary as this is causing conflicts.  Our temporary work around is to then close the project without saving changes and reverting the test files.

    Additionally, when going into that test to make changes unrelated to that specific step or element, all other test files again appear in boldface in the project tab.  What is happening?

    Thanks!

    Hello Alan,

    I am sorry to find you experience such a problem and completely understand your frustration. I just tried to replicate it locally though and this scenario seems to work just fine for me. I also checked your account and noticed you haven't downloaded a recent version of the product, instead you should be running a build from July. Is that correct? If so do you plan on upgrading to the latest build we released in early December? You can find details about it from the downloads page in your account.

    We can also check the exact scenario with your project if you can send it to us via a private support ticket. Just pack a couple of tests you get this problem with and we can test that with the latest version for you.

    Looking forward to hearing from you,
    Konstantin Petkov
