Summary0006551: (User cannot export Test Spec Document) Possibility to generate HTML DOC for a specific Test Suite
DescriptionIt looks like [^] introduced the moving of the "Generate Test Specification Document" away from the main Project view and into the Test Specification view under the "Gear" options. When a user has the Project selected then they the test spec for ALL test suites can be generated but when a user selects a specific test suite the ability is export a test spec doc is no available. Please see attached screenshot.
Steps To Reproduce# Goto test spec
# select projects (top level of tree)
# Click "gear" or options in right side panel
* see that HTML of test spec doc can be generated

# goto test spec
# select a test suite, below top of tree)
# Click "gear" or options in right side panel
* see that HTML of test spec doc CANNOT be generated as the button does not exist

- Not sure where the subject was misleading.. but ok
- fman, can you explain what is wrong about the export concept? You can say it is wrong but without saying what is correct the comment is of no use.

I have 1.9.9 running on another VM and with the previous functionality of the "Generate Test Specification Document" that was available from the Project view a test suite can be selected and the html, open office writer or ms word doc export can be accomplished. Am I missing how to do this with 1.9.11? To me is seems that I am getting reduced functionality from the previous version.

subject is absolutely wrong because YOU CAN GENERATE Test Spec DOCUMENT for full test project.
What you can not do is generate TEST SPEC DOC for an specific Test Suite.
You have provided this info inside the image when IMHO was important enough to be in subject.

export is wrong IMHO because you want a report, not something you export for later import. (at leat for me), but this can be discussion about similar context and finally have no value.

You are getting a redesigned feature, an because:
TestLink does not REALLY produce a WORD doc or Open Office document, but provided to the browser this illusion, we have lot of issues with images
(they can not be emmbeded but were LINKS) when this 'Pseudo Word' what shared with people that have no direct access to testlink server.
Choice has been => System will give you exactly what it has promised => an HTML Output.
Do not think it's a great problem get this HTML and open it on WORD to change it if this is what you need.
I normaly use this output to share a PRINTED version with a client

I'm sorry fman, my terminology is not correct in regards to the functionality provided. Export was the wrong term and specification of the specific inability of report generation was lacking, I should have mentioned _report_ of Test SUITE instead of 'export of test spec document'.

I don't care about the report in ms word or open office document as you don't care if people need it or not as WORD can open it and then EXPORT to the format they would want. I just care about being able to produce a REPORT of a TEST SUITE the same as I was able to in 1.9.9. Redesigned feature or a feature request, I don't care. It is functionality I was expecting and now is not available in 1.9.11. At least it is free and the main developer is passionate about the project.
Thank you fman
