Editable Step Descriptions

As a test author, I have the ability to edit the auto-generated step description to provide more clarity around what the step is actually doing to improve readability and maintainability  of the journey


As an example, based on how my app is setup, I often get a description like 'Click on the <span> element with class name "btn btn-default form-control ui-select-toggle"'. This tells me nothing about the step is actually trying to accomplish and my only remedy is to run the step and observe what it does. I'd love to be able to rewrite the description to read something like "Click on the Brand Safety tab"
