I'm sorry, but your answer makes my point. Even if I do not select any validation, I still have to manually remove the Spry Validation components. PLUS I have have to take the extra step to set username to Text from Password which should never have been set that way in the first place and I have to change the Password field from Password to Text and then back again.
1. These extensions should save work, not create it.
2. Past versions worked as expected.
3. DataAssist pages have similar issues
If I have a date field in a form, your wizard decides without my input what format that date will take and arbitrarily inserts a data picker - and it calls the default DATE format in a MySQL database incorrect. If I want to keep your DatePicker, I have to at least change the validation which, since I did not choose to validate any field SHOULD NOT BE THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE!
I have worked in this industry for going on 20 years and I have to say I have never encountered another company that offers such incredible support for their products. You go above and beyond to help designers and it is greatly appreciated, but you have this one 100% wrong. You need to rework your UI for these products to give the simple, straightforward results you always have and save the bells and whistles for those who want them. I expect to have to add validation and formatting. I do not expect to have to remove them.
