Periods in Object names in Web Recorder are ignored

When I rename an object in Web Recorder and enter periods (.) in the name of the object and save the object, the object’s name in the Object repository is shown without the periods so the periods that are entered in the object name are ignored.
When I name an object as ‘’, Katalon saves it as “objectnamewithperiods”

Please let us know how would your work be affected if this issue has not been resolved?

@ThanhTo Confirmed.

You can create objects.with.periods manually, but closing out the recorder saves them without periods.
