To access the preference settings for HTTP test editor, click Window > Preferences > Test > Test Editor > HTTP Test.

You can set the following preferences for the HTTP test editor:

Display decoded URLs whenever possible
Select to decode any encoded element in a URL. Decoding improves readability.
Hide HTTP request/response content larger than (kB)
Select to hide data larger than a specific size. The Content area in a response indicates the size of the hidden data and whether it is binary. To display hidden data, press Ctrl+Shift+Spacebar.
Show in all requests
Select to display the host and port information in every request in the Test Contents area of the test editor. A test often contains many server connections. When you clear this preference, it is easier to read a test.
Show on primary requests only
Select to display the host and port information in only the primary request for each HTTP page in the Test Contents area of the test editor.
Show when different from primary request
Select to display the host and port information in the Test Contents area of the test editor for requests that use a different connection than the primary request.
Skip responses with binary contents
Select to skip binary response data when you enable content verification points in a test. Content verification points verify whether specified strings are present in response data.
Create only in primary responses
Select to limit the creation of content verification points to primary responses when you enable content verification points in a test.
