Please highlight the skipped steps ...

Hello all TestStand users,


How often i had to debug my sequences ... to find out after many minutes that some of my steps are Skipped ! Smiley Mad


It would be nice to highlight the skipped steps by default ... (Without having to customize something in TestStand) Smiley Surprised


  • By using a stroked font to view the step détail (STEP SKIPPEDSmiley Wink
  • By using a red, flashy color (STEP SKIPPED):smileyhappy:
  • Or better, both ... (STEP SKIPPED):smileyvery-happy:


Thanks for your help ...
