Hi Vickie

Not currently I'm afraid. You could do it indirectly by using our MS-Excel import/export add-in.

Big vote for this one from me also.
I'd like to be able to copy, or rather 'clone' the complete test case and then make the changes. Test cases for some functional area are often the same, with minimal changes.
I am currently in the process of selecting a Test Management Tool, and this is one of the criteria.
It is a time saver, and it takes away a lot of tedious work.

Another vote for this.  Basic time saving feature that is needed.  Thinking of writing something with API as workaround in the meantime.

Has any progress been made on this feature? We have a lot of team members who would love having this ability to copy test steps to another test case as well.

Would also like to know if there is any progress on this.  I'm not currently a customer, but trying to find an alternative for a tool that we're using that doesn't have this facility, as its something we really need.  We need to make sure that we move to a tool that has it (or will be implementing it soon) before we make the move.

Good news, everyone! This long-awaited enhancement has made it into our next version of SpiraTest, 5.0. It is not ready for final release yet, but a beta version will be coming out soon. Watch our website for the announcement.

Hi Kiran,

Starting with SpiraTest version 5.0, you can import test steps from another test case into the test case you are editing.

We are using Spira v5.0.0.8 however whenever we are copying the test steps in a test case, a duplicate copy of those steps being created in same test case and no paste option is coming in any other test case.

Hi Kiran,

Yes, the copy (or clone, as it was changed to) function only copies within the test case. You need to use the Import button. That allows you to bring the steps from another test case into the current test case.
