Anything else you think would help our investigation, like a screenshot or a log file? You can drag and drop screenshots to this box. For large amount of text, try putting them into something like Pastebin.

Additional comments

What iOS device are you using?

I am using an IPad pro

Ok can repro here. Let me see why safari is doing that again.

I investigated and it seems like for the iOS app we’ll need to forcibly move the created file to a folder instead of offering a download like on Safari.

I think at this point the best thing we can do is to hide the button to avoid confusion. A reasonable workaround (if your app still sync correctly) would be to do it from Safari.

Does that help?
