When I right click on the parent I just get the standard prompt as attached - nothing about recursing through parents - but it does seem to have mapped them all and that bit of the test still runs, so I guess I now plod through the rest
Thanks for you help and prompt replies
Once you select either of the two given options, THAT's when you'll be prompted for the additional tree items... again, assuming they haven't already been mapped somewhere.
FYI, I almost always choose the "Choose name and properties manually" option. While TestComplete does a decent job of identification, I prefer to apply my own names for our naming conventions as well as have a choice of properties so I can build out something more robust.
So anyone else coming across this post knows, the lock up issue was not caused ny the size or compelxity of the name mapping file - it was because source control was enabled. Once that was turned off the system ran as normal.
