  1. Open the Test Case Editor or Test Suite Editor by double-clicking on the Test Case or Test Suite you want to edit.
  2. Select the Test Cases you want to extract by single-clicking them. Use »CTRL« to select more than one item.
  3. Right-click in the editor and select:
    Refactor --> Extract Test Case
  4. When prompted, enter a name for the new Test Case .
  5. The Test Cases you selected will be extracted into this new Test Case .
  6. The extracted Test Case appears as a reused Test Case in the current editor. It is marked with a small arrow to show that it is reused, and the Test Case name is in angled brackets ("< >") to show that it is the same as the specification name.
  7. The Test Case you just created is also visible in the Test Case Browser .
