1. To add additional steps to the end of a script, simply press the record button, and select the option to continue adding steps.

2. To add new lines in the middle of a script using the wizard, you can right-click the script within the editing pane (at the bottom of the screen) where you want to add a new line. The context menu with the options to add new steps will appear:

3. To edit variables such as keywords, and field values like usernames and passwords, left-click an underlined field label to edit the value.

4. For more advanced editing (for advanced users only) you can enable the Allow to edit script manually feature in the Advanced Settings menu. However, this will allow you to change the text of any line in the script. So if you do not edit a line properly the script will break. To enable this mode, click the wrench icon in the upper right hand of the program and go to Advanced Settings > Miscellaneous > Allow to edit script manually. See also: Editing a script with C#.
