Multi-line test steps added to Microsoft Test Manager

I just discovered a recent (October 2011) blog post from Brian Harry where he discussed a service pack release that allows test authors to utilize line breaks in test steps and a couple of other things.

NOTE: This is not the same as Service Pack 1 (SP1). This is a separate install.

  1. After you have installed this service pack.
  2. Open a new or existing test case in Microsoft Test Manager.
  3. Place your cursor at the end of a test step and hit ALT+ENTER to insert a line break. Continue typing to add text on a second line.

So, there you go! There will be other usability enhancements within the next version of the product and I’ll highlight those in upcoming posts.
