Test case templates

If test specifications are similar, we can create new test specifications based on one of templates from template files. Template files are normal *.iyaml files created with testIDEA. To use them as templates, we add them to the list of files in the Templates dialog. The same dialog is also used for adding new test specifications based on templates to the current project in testIDEA. Select option File | New Test From Template..., and the following dialog opens:

This dialog can be used to edit list of template files - we can have more of them, if needed. Test specifications from the selected file are shown in the bottom pane. To add a new test specifiation to the current project, select the test specification in the dialog and click OK. If you want it to be added as a derived test specification of the currently selected test specification in testIDEA, check also the Add as derived test check box.
