Separate or Shared file global selection setting is not obvious

Status: Declined

I'm declining this idea due to lack of community support.

 The Separate or Shared file global selection setting is not obvious on the user interface in TestStand. This is a very important setting that must be located in the "Edit/Sequence file properties" menu:

Maybe this selection should also be available directly in the "variables" tab:

I completely agree. Since this setting affects the behavior of FileGlobals during execution, there should be an obvious visual indication of this setting on the FileGlobals. You have to know what this setting is to be able to use the FileGlobals correctly.

 

And since this setting applies to FileGlobals, the most reasonable place to configure this setting is on the FileGlobals themselves.

Fortunately the idea being declined isn't currently preventing new kudos.  This is a decent idea that I missed due to only recently starting to use the TestStand Idea Exchange.
