Additional information


Does it work in the sandbox vault?

Also, I removed the “editor-legacy” tag from the post because your debug info shows you’re not using the legacy editor.

this was fixed in 0.16.2 or 0.16.3.

check update tell me your app is up to date !!
I don’t use the insider version so , when will the stable version that solves the problem be released?

There are no ETAs, sorry.
