    • I see this was flagged as "fixed"… Testing it again in Build 14352 shows it’s still a problem. Perhaps the fix didn’t make it into this build? If it did, this needs to be re-opened.

    • Hello Bryan.  The fix for the bug did not make it into the 14352 build.

    • Thanks, Rafael.

    • Can confirm this is fixed in 14366. Nice work!
