Using the Clip Editor

The Clip Editor brings together the disparate elements of your test— including test objects such as Containers, Nested Clips, Messages and Actions, Scripts, Delays, and Checkpoints into a single test framework. Collection types include Groups, Pages, Chains, Transactions, If-Then-Else, and Switch, as well as Nested Clips and Nested Compositions, and can be displayed in both List and Icon views.

When the Clip Editor opens only those clip elements that aren’t contained (e.g. in a Chain, Page, or Group) are initially loaded. Whenever a container is opened, only a subset of the clip elements in that container are then loaded. Additional data is loaded for clip elements when they are called upon (e.g. selected for editing). These makes the Clip Editor more responsive, particularly within larger test clips.
