Solved! Go to Solution.
The Regions.tcRegions file is not currently supported to be shared between projects within the same project suite. If you open a project in a NEW suite and share the Regions object, that should work, but not within the same suite.
That's so dumb, the smart thing that anyone would do it to make a project called library that had all your function with all your name mapping along with all your region checks that you know work and then import the library into all your projects which would require to import regions and then just all all the stuff you need out of your library. That way you know all your region checks work and you don't have to keep redoing them and they can be easily tested. Soooooooo dumb.
The Regions.tcRegions file is the only thing that cannot be shared. however, the images themselves WITHIN that Regions file can be shared. All you'd need to do is just add them in. Currently, that's a manual process, unfortunately.
Feel free to suggest a change in the Ideas forum here for TestComplete. I agree, it's something that can be improved upon.
@4m4d3u5 I think you'll find that everyone here does things in a slightly different way. Some of us have been at this a lot longer than others and what seems "dumb" or "smart" to you may be the opposite for someone else. Please don't use this language about other people here or their work. Thanks.
