Default description on a keyword test

When I add a step to a keyword test, the Description is added by default. For instance, if I add a script routine, the description "Runs Script routine" is added to that step of the keyword test. Is it possible to have these descriptions for any keyword addition NOT enter a default description?

As far as I know... no.  That's just something that shows up.  You can hide the description column if you want to so it doesn't display on screen, but the default is always added.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

Hi @vthomeschoolmom,

Hiding the Description column (as tristaanogre suggested) can make the trick. 

Just a follow-up question, if you don't want to see a default description, what behavior do you expect?

Re: Default description on a keyword test

I want the description, I just don't want the default value there. I want to either see nothing, or something that the tester has chosen as useful to put there.

Ah... so you want the ability to over-ride the default description, either to blank it out as not being useful or to replace it with custom text.  That would be useful.  If you add that as an idea suggestion, I'll up-vote it.... I don't think that's available at this time in TC.
