Annotating regions

Both the Test editor and the Step editor allow you to add the checkpoint or baseline image with annotation regions.

The following type of regions can be defined:

  1. Ignore: Don't report any mismatches in a region.

    If you set an Ignore region that covers the entire width of the image, it splits the image horizontally. For example if you need to compare the header and footer of a page, but the center of the page has dynamic content which is constantly changing, draw an ignore region around the entire center of the page to split the page into three parts, a header and footer above and below the ignore region, and the dynamic content in the middle which will be ignored, even if the height of the ignore region changes.

  2. Floating: Allow the position of a region to move without reporting a mismatch.

  3. Match Levels

    • Strict: Detect any mismatch visible to the human eye.

    • Ignore colors: Allow small variations such as ignoring color.

    • Layout: Check only the layout and ignore actual text and graphics.

Click from the Annotations toolbar to open the regions menu and select a region to apply to an image.

After you select a region a dialog opens and offers you the option to apply the region to other similar steps. For more information see Adding, modifying, or deleting regions of a step.
