The original message complaint was #4372 on February 13, UFT 3.0 - Evaluation Text Goes Away.
I presently have both 2.8 and 3.0 on my computer.
I tested and found that, in both cases, the Evaluation Text would NOT hold after leaving that window. So I played around trying different ideas to see if I could make it hold.
After making this text hold (as described, reclicking a radio button), I could exit the page, exit the program, reopen the program, and find the Evaluation window lit with the green light and the entered text was there.
Just now, I found that I could make the green light stay on and the text appear in the Evaluation box IF I clicked on any radio button either before or after I entered the text. When I OK back to the Individual Record, close the project, shut UFTree down, Then reload UFTree, open the project, return to the Event Evidence window for that same Individual, the green light is still there and the text is still there.
I have not checked, with the green light working and the evidence in place, whether, after closing the project, exiting the program, opening the program and project, going to a different Individual Record, -- whether or not I had to click a radio button to make the next evaluation hold.
Personally, I have never used the evaluation feature. But I get curious about many things. Once I messed up the tombstone calendar by trying to make that feature misbehave when someone complained on this board. I succeeded in recreating the problem. I did not find a repair or work-around for that.
I have two cats. Curiosity hasn't killed them yet. My curiosity may kill me. (grin)
