Solutions contain tests, components, application areas, and function libraries in a single solution. You can create and add new documents to a solution (File > Add > New Test/Business Component/Application Area/Function Library) or already created documents (File > Add > Existing Test/Business Component/Application Area/Function Library)

Work with testing documents in the Document Pane, which supports the following types of views and functionality:

Canvas Graphically displays and enables you to edit the flow of your test, action, or component.
Keyword View Enables you to create and view the steps of your action or component in a keyword-driven, modular, table format.
Editor Provides text and code editing features that facilitate the design of your text, script, and code documents.
Application Area
