Visual Studio 2010 SP1 TFS Compatibility GDR for Microsoft Test Manager improvements:
- Most testers have been accustomed to having multi-line support in Excel for managing their test cases. So it's exciting that now Microsoft Test Manager supports multi-line test steps with ALT+ENTER(just like in Excel!).
- If you are in Microsoft Test Manager and have found that the Test Steps view is limiting, that has now changed. Once you have Visual Studio 2010 SP1 and the GDR installed you will see that the number of Test Steps that you view at once has increased!
