    Hello.  I use the Run Selected Steps option repeatedly in one test run, working through test steps a set at a time.  I've noticed that as different web pages are opened in the run, whether they open by default with recording or paused recording mode varies.  If I don't pay close attention, often I end up recording steps when I don't intend to and almost as often, they are recorded in a different part of the test script and thus trip me up later.   Is this default something a user can control?  Shouldn't the test run start with the default of paused recording and then stay consistent with the user's selection from there?

     

    Your help on this would be much appreciated.  Thanks!

    Hi Briar,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I am not sure if understand you correctly. I will try to explain how this option works.

    When the recorder is attached and you select multiple steps and use RunSelectedSteps the recording is paused automatically after executing them.

    Also the Step Marker (see the attached screen shot) is moved to the last executed step. It is used to denote where to insert newly recorded/added steps.

    Please let me know if I am missing something.

    Hi, Boyan,

     

    Thanks for your answer.  I will try to come up with a specific example of what I have encountered.  It seems to happen after the second or third use of RunSelectedSteps in the same session.  The recorder switches to Record mode when I would expect it to be in Paused mode.  This, of course, could be a user-caused error :) I will try to come up with a specific scenario.
