Add Step shortcut in Preconditions


#1

Hi,

The ‘Add Step’ shortcut (Ctrl + .) does not function when used within the Preconditions textbox.

This feels like an oversight, especially given the page doesn’t start with any steps, & there’s no alternative function for this shortcut.

Thanks,
Paul.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your posting. The Ctrl+. shortcut is only active inside the steps control when you are currently inside a step (and adds a new step/expected result after the active/current step). To add a step to the end of the list, you can use Alt+. instead and this is also possible if another field is focused/active (e.g. the Preconditions text box).

I hope this helps!

Regards,
Tobias

Hi Tobias,

Thank you. I hadn’t noticed that second shortcut!

That’s exactly what I was looking for.

Thanks,
Paul.
