Editing tests

Create new objects: right-click inside the editor window and select "Mode: add ..." from the popup menu (see right popup menu in the ScreenShot) (replace the ... dots by the name of the task you want to create). Or choose the Mode from the dropdown box in the toolbar. Then click anywhere in the editor window to create a new instance of a task.

To connect tasks, you need to be in the "add ..." mode, too. It doesn't matter which mode exactly. Click on a task, hold down the mouse button and draw the mouse to the next task. This will create a connection between the two tasks – they will be executed one after the other if the test case is run. Please note that the connections are directed, and the arrow points in the direction of test execution.

Even though it's possible to create circular connections, and you can even connect one task with itself, you cannot run a test that contains circular connections: an error message will be displayed.

To move tasks, select "Mode: normal", then click on the node and drag it to where you want it.

You can select multiple tasks by holding down the Ctrl-key and clicking on the tasks with the left mouse button. Then you can move all those vertices at once!

You can determine the size of the graph area with the items "Set Width" and "Set Height" in the popup menu. If you select "Trim to size", all nodes are arranged to optimally fill the available space (without changeing their relative position). The "Increase space" options come in handy if you have drawn a lot of stuff and need more space on one side of the area.
