I am currently on Katalon Studio version 7.5.5
I have noticed that after some point of time, Katalon stops saving changes made anywhere throughout the project. I also noticed, the * symbol on the tabs (under which changes are being made) does not show up.
Because of this issue, I am now closing the project > reopening the project > make few changes > save > close and reopen project again to verify for any changes saved. This is the one of the two ways I am able to save changes in my project…
The save issue happens only when i start seeing the below Cache Module node progress bar on hitting CTRL+S
And while closing the project, the following appears at random:
There is not such code that causes the above error. Closing Katalon > Re-opening the project > Making few changes to any other file (and not the stated Common,groovy file) > Saving it > Closing the project > This time the save and closing project works perfectly fine without reporting the above error of the untouched Common.groovy file.
All the above events happen only when the * symbol does not show up on the tabs of the files being changed.
Upon further investigating, I found out that my Keyword file has approx.1500 lines of code. Katalon Studio becomes too slow when adding any more lines of code. It stops responding when making any further changes or saving changes. To get it working and the 2nd way of saving changes; I had to break down the keyword file script into halves i.e. Keyword file 1 with 750 loc and the other keyword file with 750 loc. Making changes anywhere now in the project saves everything successfully. Katalon Studio also stops freezing if taken this approach which is quite unpractical.
Something similar found on the forums (Saving issue and performance issue while creating multiple keywords). I hope this issue is fixed as soon as possible by the technical team.
