the default action for the compile button is 'compile for debug' - because we assume you're in a development tool, doing development work, in a development instance
it's been this way for as long as I know
Strange. As I remember it was always compiled not for debug first. I never have to change each procedure or fuction as release versio. Does that mean that ver 18.2 have a bug then and If I run it locally inside 18.3 too?
