STM32CUbeMX : RTC options for STM32F1

On our custom board we don't use RTC clock for time or date.


But I need to activate RTC to use Backup registers, and we use GPIOC PIN13 in mode OUTPUT_PP for leds.


With STM32CUbeMX 4.23.0 and STM32CubeF1 package 1.6.0 I have two options in Pinout :


Activate RCT with "RTC OUT" as "Disable" or "No RTC OutPut".


When "RTC OUT" is "Disable", in the screen  "RTC Configuration", I can't select "No output on tamper pin" so GPIOC PIN13 can't be used.


When "RTC OUT" is "No RTC OutPut", in the generated code we have :hrtc.Init.OutPut = RTC_OUTPUTSOURCE_NONE; which is OK, but the initialisation of time and date uses RTC_BKP_DR1 with value 0x32f2.


So I have the choice of not beeing able to use GPIOC PIN13 or RTC_BKP_DR1.


I choosed the first Option, and then manually modify the generated code to write hrtc.Init.OutPut = RTC_OUTPUTSOURCE_NONE; 


Is there another solution ?


Is it possible to have the option "No output on TAMPER pin" when "RTC OUT" is "Disable" in STM32CUbeMX ?
