Re-recording Scripts
Recording over a session affects all scripts in the session. To record over just one
script, simply select that script's name when Robot prompts you for a script name
during recording (in the Split Test Script or Stop Recording dialog box).
Also, if you plan a script in TestManager, its name appears in the list that you can
choose from when you record a script.
