-\label{specexec}
-
-Specification occurs in the \gdtestcasebrowser{}, \gdmarpar{../../../share/PS/testCase}{specified \gdcase{}}, \gdtestcaseeditor{} and its support views. A specified \gdcase{} is a \emph{master template}.
-
-Master templates can be reused in two ways:
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item They can be added to a \gdsuite{} (in the \gdtestsuiteeditor{}).
-\item They can be nested in another \gdcase{} (in the \gdtestcaseeditor{}).
-\end{itemize}
-
-\gdcases{} show a small arrow when they are reused to show that they are only a reference to the master template.
-\gdmarpar{../../../share/PS/testCaseRef}{reused \gdcase}
-
-%See the diagram in the \bxcaption{User Interface} chapter (\bxfigref{specexec})
-%for details on where specification and reuse occur.

-\subsubsection{Modifying Reused \gdcases}
-You can modify reused \gdcases{} in three ways:
-\begin{itemize}
-\item You can change the data they test by overwriting any previously entered parameter values \bxpref{referencetasks}. This is only possible if you have moved the parameters up using references in the \gdsteps{}.
-\item You can change the component they test by reassigning the component names \bxpref{reass}. In this way, a single \gdcase{} can execute the same action on different components.
-\item You can change the \gdcase{} name. \gdcases{} have both \emph{specification} and \emph{execution}
-names. The specification name is the name of the master template, and you can overwrite this each time you reuse a \gdcase{}.
-\end{itemize}
-
-Until the data or \gdcase{} name is overwritten in a reused \gdcase{}, any changes to the data or name in the master template will be carried through to all places where you have reused the \gdcase{}. If you have overwritten data or the \gdcase{} name in a reused \gdcase{}, the reused \gdcase{} will no longer be affected when the data or name in the master template changes.
-
-
-\subsubsection{Foundations}
-\app{} is a flexible program, allowing data values to be changed even after
-specification. However, in order to preserve test functionality, you cannot alter the names of references in a
-\gdstep{} or \gdcase{} if its parent \gdcase{} is nested in another \gdcase{}.
-
-That is, the references in the child \gdcase{} are part of the \textbf{foundation} of the parent
-\gdcase{}. This means that the references in the nested \gdcase{}
-may not be changed, since modifications will change the foundation on which
-the parent \gdcase{} is built. This may adversely
-affect the test by making the other \gdcase{} unusable.
-
-However, there is a way of altering \gdsteps{} and references in reused
-\gdcases{}. See the section on modifying reused \gdcases{}
-\bxpref{overwritingreused} in \bxcaption{Tasks} for more details.
-
-%Reference values, however, may be edited at any time, as long as their
-%eference has been carried through the hierarchy to the \gdcase to be
-%edited. In the \gdtestsuitebrowser{}, for example, only values in the
-%top-level \gdcase can be edited.
