IBM RFT Web UI Test - v10.1.2: Updating the thinktime for the recorded WebUI test script

We are recording many scripts using the Web UI test project. Some of the scripts have more than 50 or 60 steps and we do need to record 300 to 400 scripts.

To improve the performance and to achieve the synchronization, we need to adjust the thinktime by visiting each step in the recorded script.

is there any option to provide/ update the thinktime at one shot for 300 recorded scripts?

Also, is it possible to update the thinktime for all the 50 test steps of a particular script?

Please refer to the IBM ticket - TS005566035

    This request lacks sufficient information for us to evaluate it. It might not be considered further until it has been revised and clarified. Please provide the following information
    1. We have the ability in the schedule to control the thinktime. Is this similar to what you're looking for?
    2. When you run an individual test, there's a Max Thinktime in Test Execution Preferences that's set to 2s

    Would you like us to apply Option 2 to compound tests, too?
