Increase the size of text boxes for the test execute by default?

Tuesday, February 11, 2020

I'm planning to have a lot of testcases which compare many screenshots. However, the expected box is very small by default (only shows 1-2 lines).  I would have to drag the bottom right corner of the expected text box down each time to expand and see the full image screenshot. Is there a way to increase the default size of the expected and assertion test boxes by default? This would increase our productivity a lot by saving time from tedious click and drag. Thank you.

This is similar to . Trying to Alt + Click in the text box does nothing for me. In either case, Alt + Click is still not be the preferred solution.

Hi John

ALT+Click was a solution in an older version of SpiraTest (v4.x I believe).

We do now have resizable text boxes (which was not possible in v4.x) and also a much faster and easier Full Screen.

You can also click on the hyperlink for the test step itself and then you have a full screen editor for all three fields (description, expected result, sample data).
