Import a locator as new

If you have multiple projects that use the same or very similar locators, rather than recreate them each time, you can export the locator and later import it and modify it as needed in another project. Imported locators are ready to use right away and perform just like the original locators.

Note If the imported locator depends on other items such as a dictionary or database, you may need to configure the required items before the locator can be used.

You can import a locator by following these steps:

  1. Open the Project Tree window if it is not already open.
  2. Select the class in the Project Tree where you are importing the new locator.
  3. On the Design tab, in the Edit group, click Import as New Replace Locator icon.

    The Import Locator window is displayed.

  4. Select the locator file and click Open.

    The imported locator is added at the end of the locators list.

  5. Optionally, rename the new locator in the Project Tree by changing the initial name.
  6. Optionally, modify the locator as needed.
