Manipulate direct RAW HTTP Request

Sometimes I need the ability to just splat a raw HTTP request into a filtered capture before I run to completion against the target host.  At present I have to manipulate the requests via the Headers/WebForms view which is more time consuming to perform.   I appreciate it 'could' make parsing the raw request back into the other tabs more problematic - maybe this is why you can't currently do it ?

    To be clear, you've paused a request via a request breakpoint, and you want to edit that request without using one of the higher level editors?

    Simply switch to the RAW request inspector tab and edit the request to taste, then click "Run to Completion" or "Break on Response".

    Hi Eric,

    Yep - I pause the request when it arrives so that I can edit.   I can change the HTTP headers and form data etc - but when I try to edit the raw request it doesn't seem to forward on my changes.   I'll try again tomorrow when I'm back on a Windows machine.

    Regards

    K. It certainly should work. If it doesn't, please try to get exact repro steps and I'll have a look.
