Test step screen captures saved to document root directory

Wednesday, June 22, 2016
This seems to be a change in 5.x.  When executing a manual test case I sometimes paste in a capture of the application.  These .png files now appear to be saved to the document root directory where as before these were not visibly saved into documents.

Hi Robert

Yes you are correct. Previously SpiraTeam did not support directly pasting in a screenshot, you basically were just having the browser embed the image as base64 encoded text in the HTML rich text. This could cause the database to get very large and was not consistent across browsers. We have now added native support for screenshots. They get added to the Documents section > Root Folder, from where you can then move them to a folder of your choice.

Would it be possible in the future to configure the folder location?
