Default settings of the "Select Option By Value" keyword

The default behavior of the Select Option By Value keyword is to set the “IsRegex” parameter to True. This makes no sense, since it is NOT a regex and never will be, it’s a set digit that represents an item in a dropdown. It doesn’t cause problems per se, the keyword works with this parameter, however i’ve noticed it’s much much slower since Katalon will do additional checks (i suppose) that are not necessary.

It might just be me, but i’ve noticed a significant improvement of execution time if i go and set all the IsRegex params of the “… by value” keywords to False.

I don’t know which version you’re using, but in v6.1.0 and more, false is the default value.

6.1.5, and it’s always been “True” as default for me…
That’s quite weird
