I'm sorry you're running into hurdles merging your page nodes. If your tests are failing in compilation, it sounds like you have references to the page nodes in your coded steps. Merging page or element nodes in Elements Explorer does update the non-coded steps that use those elements. If your coded steps refer to an element whose element name has changed, you may need to update your coded steps. The built-in code editor for Test Studio does not implement find and replace; if you have the Visual Studio 2010 plug-in installed, you can open your tests in VS2010 and use its code editing features. Please let us know if we can assist you further.
All the best,
the Telerik team
