Added ability to import Test Cases from other elements into current elements Test Set (right click in docked Testing Window)
Added ability to select other element to import Scenarios from as Test scripts (Docked Test Window - Import Scenarios)
Added ability to show Test scripts as compartment in most elements (set for Diagram using Diagram properties dialog - Show Testing)
