The manual testing functionality is deprecated. Do not use it for creating new tests. It will be removed in a future TestComplete release.

The Manual Test editor’s toolbar and context menu provide commands to manage tests and test steps. The available commands are:

New step Adds a new step on the same level as the selected step. If the test node is selected, a new top-level step is added.
New substep Adds a new substep to the currently selected step. Available only from the context menu.
Delete Deletes the selected step.
Move step up Moves the selected step up in the steps tree.
Move step down Moves the selected step down in the steps tree.
