Problem(Abstract)

Symptom

STEPS TO REPRODUCE

  1. Create a TestCase, Add following content in TestCase Design


  2. ==============
    1blablabla bla bla blabla
    2blablabla bla bla blabla
    3blablabla bla bla blabla

    4blablabla bla bla blabla

    5blablabla bla bla blabla

    6blablabla bla bla blabla

    7blablabla bla bla blabla

    8blablabla bla bla blabla

    9blablabla bla bla blabla

    10blablabla bla bla blabla
    11blablabla bla bla blabla
    12blablabla bla bla blabla

    13blablabla bla bla blabla
    14blablabla bla bla blabla
    ===============

  3. Save.

  4. Create a Manual Testscript from TestCase Design.

  5. Save,


RQM creates the test script with uneven steps. This means that, one step has four lines above and the other step can have three or two lines.

Remove in the above lines between the text in step 2, if you intend to use the steps to recreate the problem.

The incorrect steps depends on the format that user has used.

Cause

If the step separation in the text seems inconsistent, you see formatting issues in steps of the test script.

Environment

Rational Quality Manager version 4.0.1

Resolving the problem

The formatting must be uniform. For example, if you put single blank line in between step 1 and step 2, you must separate subsequent lines with a single blank line between all steps.

Consider the following steps.

1. Create a TestCase, Add following content in TestCase Design.


  1. =========================
    1blablabla bla bla blabla

    2blablabla bla bla blabla

    3blablabla bla bla blabla

    4blablabla bla bla blabla

    5blablabla bla bla blabla

    6blablabla bla bla blabla

    7blablabla bla bla blabla

    8blablabla bla bla blabla

    9blablabla bla bla blabla

    10blablabla bla bla blabla

    11blablabla bla bla blabla

    12blablabla bla bla blabla

    13blablabla bla bla blabla

    14blablabla bla bla blabla
    ===============================

  2. Save.

  3. Create a Manual Testscript from TestCase Design.

  4. Open the Testscript and you will see all the lines are in 1 step.



Also here, remove the lines between the text in step 2.
