File name is getting lost when downloading Coach & Share assets

As recently as 12/6/22, when downloading a Coach & Share asset using the Download icon in the upper-right of the screen, the downloaded file kept the same file name as the originally uploaded file. As of December 7, any new assets now download with a “garbage” file name of indecipherable characters, rather than keeping the original file name. Is this happening for other users, too, or is it just a quirk at my site? Did something in a recent update cause this change? This cannot be intentional, can it??

Realized today that this is happening not specifically upon downloading a file, but upon uploading it. Files used to upload with their actual file name, and would then subsequently download with that file name as the default name. Now they’re uploading with junk text as the file name, which means that’s the name applied when downloading, too. Anyone know if this is a bug or if it was for some reason intentionally changed??

OK, maybe this was a temporary fluke/bug, because it appears to be fixed now! I’m seeing the full file name again, on uploads and downloads.
