Too lazy to do the same actions over and over? QtTesting is the answer! The QtTesting library provides you with an easy way to record and play macros with Slicer3D. Included in this library is a user-friendly recording interface that allows you to easily control what actions you'd like to record as well as a simple and smart playback feature that will repeat your specific sequence of actions whenever you want and however many times is necessary. With minimal input from the user, QtTesting record all accomplished actions from the point you have started the record until you stop it! "Create a puppet and let it do it the rest ... "

Slicer developers already use this library to record tutorials and test Slicer3D application.
