Access    Select element | Element | Testing | <test class> | right-click on test in list | Create a Maintenance Defect from this test   or
Select element | Element | Element Browser (Alt+9) > Testing folder | right-click on test | Create a Maintenance Defect from this test

Open the Maintenance window (Element | Maintenance | Defects).

The tab shows a Defect item having the same name as the test. The Description, Input, Acceptance Criteria and Results texts from the test are all displayed in the Defect's Description tab under separate headings.
