Edit test case steps: side by side



When editing cases with steps, the expected result textarea is displayed below steps text area.

This is kinda annoying, as it creates a really long scroll (for more than 3 steps) and visually you don’t see your steps side by side the expected results, as you do when viewing or running a test case.

I’ve attached the screenshot to demonstrate how the edit case form should look:

Hope you you consider changing it,


Hello Alex,

Thanks for your suggestion. I agree that this would be useful to have with large monitors and I’ve added it as a feature request. It may be possible to implement this in the meantime with UI scripts:

UI scripts allow you to change some aspects of the UI via CSS and/or JavaScript. I hope this helps and please let me know in case you have any further questions.




I would like to request that if this feature is introduced, it would be optional.
I actually find the current structure more useful for me, as I work with only half of a wide screen, the other half being used for other documents.
The “narrow format” is actually very useful to me, and is one of many reasons I very much like this tool .

Hello Nikolai,

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, if we added this to the product directly, we would likely make this configurable (or have it automatically adjust it to the screen / window size) and we understand that different users use different windows sizes.




Has this side-by-side feature been implemented yet? (I am not able to find it in the Admin unless I am missing something). Or is the UI script method still the only way to implement it?


UPDATE: Please disregard. I didn’t see that I needed to select a different test case template to see this layout. I’ll set that template as the default.
