    But I can demo the issue anytime.

  • Hi,

    Can you create a simplified repro?  There isn’t enough information to repro the issue as is.

    You can also create a private bug report.  Perhaps a screen record of the issue?

    Appreciate the help,

  • How can I create a private bug report?

  • When you create the issue, near the bottom of the form, just above the CAPTCHA is the option.  It is labelled "Only visible to myself, Microsoft employees".  I have attached a screenshot showing that option and an option for public bug reports that can use private attachments.  Private bug reports have private, non-public, attachments.

  • If you do not see the option to add a private attachment for this bug report, you can create a new one and we can close this one.
