Thanks for doing the updates. After the updates done 17/9 to workpapers, I have noticed the following when downloading reports from workpapers (clicking on the download button on the document pop out screen):
The first report I download downloads ok, but then every subsequent report, downloads multiple times, rather than just once.

Also previously the reports downloaded with their correct names, now it just is named “download’”

Not a big issue, but surely I’m not the only one that’s noticed this?

Hi @johnshadlow

Thanks for reaching out. We are currently investigating this and will release a fix ASAP
