The Edit menu in the TestStand Sequence Editor contains the following items, which are used for editing sequences and steps:

  • Undo—Removes the last edit you performed in the current document.
  • Redo—Performs the last edit removed using the Undo command.
    Note Note  the TestStand Sequence Editor maintains a list of edits you previously performed on each file. If you edit a step type or data type a file uses, or if a custom tool menu performs edits to a file, the sequence editor clears the list of undoable edits for the file. If you want to be able to undo these types of change to a file, you must save the file before performing them.

    When you attempt to perform an undo or redo operation and an edit operation was performed that the sequence editor does not recognize, the sequence editor prompts you to inform you that the undo or redo operation could not be performed.

  • Cut—Removes the selected text or object and places it on the clipboard.
  • Copy—Copies the selected text or object to the clipboard.
  • Paste—Inserts text or an object from the clipboard.
  • Delete—Deletes the selected text or object.
  • Rename—Renames the text of the selected item.
  • Select All—Highlights all the objects in the active window or pane.
  • Diff Sequence File Against—Compares the selected sequence file with another sequence file. The TestStand File Diff and Merge utility launches and shows the differences between the two files. As you view the differences, you can transfer individual changes between the files.
  • Diff Against Saved Version—Compares the current, in-memory version of the sequence file you select with the version last saved to disk. The TestStand File Diff and Merge utility launches and shows the differences.
  • Find/Replace—Launches the Find/Replace dialog box, in which you can search for a string within a file or view in the sequence editor window.
  • Find/Replace in Files—Launches the Find/Replace in Files dialog box, in which you can search for a string within one or more files.
  • Find Previous—Selects the previous match from the last active and open Find Results pane. Use the <Ctrl+Shift+G> keyboard shortcut for this command for increased efficiency when reviewing matches.
  • Find Next—Selects the next match from the last active and open Find Results pane. Use the <Ctrl+G> keyboard shortcut with this command for increased efficiency when reviewing matches.
  • Sequence Properties—Launches the Sequence Properties dialog box, in which you can edit the properties for a selected sequence in the active Sequence File window.
  • Sequence File Properties—Launches the Sequence File Properties dialog box, in which you can view the pathname, disk size, and disk date of the active sequence file. You can also use this dialog box to edit various properties of a sequence file, including the load and unload options, comment, and the sequence file type. If the sequence file type is normal, you can also specify a process model file for the sequence file.
  • Sequence File Callbacks—Launches the Sequence File Callbacks dialog box, which displays all the callback sequences you can override in the sequence file. This includes the Engine callbacks TestStand defines and the Model callbacks the process model for the sequence file defines.
