Manually add an object to Object Repository during active recording


First time posting so I will try to do this right… also for context I am a newbie with test automation in Katalon.

Using Chrome (latest) / windows 7 with Katalon Studio 5.8.6.

During use of web recorder I want to manually add new test items (e.g. Add>web UI keyword > Set Text) and point this at a new object.

After I add the item line in the list of recorded actions the object shows as null. Double clicking displays a list of captured objects. I want to add a new object to this list (for example one identified using xpath), so that I can point the step at the new object and configure its input.

Is this possible whilst recording, or are there other steps I must do, such as stopping / starting the recording?

Thank you in advance!
