[KS 8.9.6] [Q&A] Katalon Studio: Automatic Generation of Duplicate .groovy Files in bin Folder

I’m having an issue with Katalon Studio. Whenever I open a project, an additional .groovy file is automatically generated in the bin folder. After running a test case, I encounter this error:

****Keyword 'runFeatureFileWithTags' failed (Root cause: cucumber.runtime.DuplicateStepDefinitionException: Duplicate step definition exceptions in.**..)**

This error prevents me from running tests further. While I can temporarily fix the issue by uninstalling and reinstalling Katalon Studio, this is a time-consuming process, and I believe it might be a bug within the tool itself.

Could you please help me identify the cause of this issue and suggest a more permanent solution?
