Reusing the current web application controls in openspan studio
in the openspan studio, I am changing the Start page for web application from http://X to http://X1 for an instance, where X1 has some cosmetic changes like moving the controls from one place to other and few similar minor changes within the page, without changing the control names or properties.
and the automation is failing to identify the controls in the new URL though nothing has changed, is there a way we can reuse the existing controls or have to recreate each and every control in the application?
being new to this,I assume there should be someway we can use existing as we cannot add 100's of form controls every time we enhance our application.
please post your thoughts!

Changing the URL may have made the page not match entirely if you have a Url match rule for the page. Check in interrogation to see which controls match and which controls don't. Adjust the match rules for the top level controls that don't match to be more generic or to match both page's controls to fix your problem. Whenever you make a change like this, it is good to try the change in interrogation to quickly determine if your match rules will work.
