4.7 Open a Trace File

If you have saved your recording session as a Trace file (which uses the extension ".trace"), you can open it in the qTest Explorer Editor window to view and edit.

You can append a new recorded trace or a new image to an existing trace file. Learn How-to at Append to Trace File.

  1. Select the Open item from Explorer Context Menu.

  2. Browse for the Trace file on your computer.

  3. Click Open. The selected file is now opened in the Editor window for editing.

    You cannot use a qTest Explorer file if the file was created with a version of qTest Explorer that is newer than the version you are running. Please upgrade your software to open a file created by a newer version of qTest Explorer.
