As far as I understand you have an existing project already and you are adding new steps and elements in the already designed tests. Though, when adding steps or elements from a page, which you already had automated, the new elements get added under new page node in the Elements Explorer
. If I have misread the details, please let me know.
However, in case the above assumption is correct, then you will need to merge the existing page nodes
by modifying their CompareMode property to use only the static part of the URLs. Then, to avoid the same occurrence in the future, you can adjust the recording project settings
to use the same compare mode for the URLs.
Please, let me know if the provided information is suitable for your current needs, or further assistance will be required.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
