Indent and Change Levels in an Outline

You can use menu, keyboard, or toolbar commands to enter or change group and test descriptions as you are typing them. The following table summarizes the commands:

Action Menu Item Key
Indent one level Outline/Move Right ALT + forward arrow
Outdent one level Outline/Move Left ALT + back arrow
Swap with line above Outline/Transpose Up ALT + up arrow
Swap with line below Outline/Transpose Down ALT + down arrow

Each command acts on the current line or currently selected lines.

Silk Test Classic ignores comments when compiling, with the exception of functions and test cases. Comments within functions and test cases must be within the scope of the function/test case. If a comment is outdented beyond the scope of the function/test case, the compiler assumes that the function/test case has ended. As long as comments do not violate the function/test case scope, they can be placed anywhere on a line.

Note: Comments beyond the scope can also impact expand/collapse functionality and may prevent a function/test case from being fully expanded/collapsed. We recommend that you keep comments within scope.
