Hey @UMARismyname!

Thank you for reporting this. I will look into this and will follow up soon!


I was not able to reproduce this issue as you have. When I attempt to create a file that starts with / the filetree shows the file endlessly loading, but I’m not able to reproduce the other two steps.

Would you mind sending me a screen recording of the issue (we recommend so I can get a better idea of the repro steps and what it looks like on your end?

We have recently released a fix for this. If you’re still having issues, please let us know!
