The number of scenarios in a project can grow very quickly, so finding the right feature file is important. SpecFlow+ LivingDoc allows you to search for folder names, tags, titles (features, scenarios, scenario outlines), descriptions and steps.

Searching Within the Entire Documentation

  1. Enter your search term in the Filter field. As you type, the results of the search are updated in the feature explorer.../_images/search-term.pngsearch term
  2. Folders, features and scenarios containing the search term in the titles, tags, descriptions or steps are displayed in blue. Node titles displayed in grey do not contain the search term, but at least one child or parent item is containing the search term. All other nodes (i.e. with no hits) are hidden in the tree.
  3. Click on an entry in the tree to display that entry. The search term is highlighted in the content. ../_images/Searching-with-highlights.pngSearch
