Mark nodes via colors
As can be seen in above picture, QF-Test is also providing the parent-nodes with corresponding smaller color marks. Like this users can quickly see whether any node in the tree (still) has any color marker and in which subtree the node with the corresponding color mark can be found.
Via the search dialog (Edit → Search) it is also possible to assign color marks to nodes. To do this, select the button "Show result list" in the search dialog. The dialog that opens lists all nodes that fulfill the previously entered search criterion. With the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + A it is now possible to select all nodes. You can then assign the selected color to the selected node:
A search based on these colors is possible. Just click on the yellow >> symbol in the search dialog to reach the extended search. Then you can choose to search only nodes having a certain color mark.
Please note that QF-Test is not saving color marks in qft-files. This means that after saving, closing and re-opening a test-suite, all previously set color marks disappear. In order to save a color mark, you need to enter @green, @red, @blue or @yellow in the comment field of a node. When QF-Test opens a test-suite, it will interprete these doctags and set the appropriate markers.
