When you use Defined Window, you use the mouse pointer to draw a rectangle around the object that

Silk Test Classic to correctly declare the object.
- If you draw a rectangle around an unrecognized object, but also include an object that
Silk Test Classic easily recognizes,
Silk Test Classic records both and lists the easily recognized object first.
