Additional information

I do get a warning. Can you be more specific in your report?

That’s odd. The file is still there. There are 2 instances of the same name. I went to graph view and there it was. I didn’t get any warning though.

You mean there are two files with the same name in the same directory?

It’s under the same vault in the same folder, so yes.

can you put these two files in a zip file and upload it somewhere?

Does one of the two files contain non-breaking white spaces?

Do you copy/paste the title of the file from somewhere?
