Import Test From Other Elements

If you have created useful tests in one element, you can import those tests into any other element through the Testing window and so avoid having to duplicate the test information manually. You open the Testing window for the empty, target element and then select the source element that contains the tests to import.

Access    Select target element | Element | Testing    (Alt+3)  | Import tests from other element  or
Select target element | Element | Element Browser (Alt+9) > Testing folder | right-click on tests | Import tests from other element
