I'm migrating from MicroFocus Silk to Ranorex. Compared to Silk, the Ranorex tests seem to be slower. How can I improve performance of Ranorex recordings?

In recordings, you often have KeySequences. For those, you have the following options:

  • merge KeySequences that have been split into different steps. You can change the split time in Settings/Recorder Defaults.
  • reduce the duration of the KeySequence (in step properties)
  • reduce the delay before pressing KeySequences (in Settings/Advanced)

If your application does not react on single keypress events, you can also

  • use Set Text instead of KeySequences

Furthermore you can

  • enable Turbo Mode
  • disable item logging (you can change the default in Settings / Recorder Defaults)
  • disable debugging
