      Hello and thanks for reporting the issue! Unfortunately this slipped thru our unit tests, we had no unit test among the thousands we got checking this specific behavior. We already identified where it came from and will fix it as soon as we can.

      We've logged the issue in github under #3426 and will update here as soon as we have news on the issue.

        A pull request has been submitted with a fix for Issue #3426. We are reviewing and testing the fix and then will release 16.8.1.

        We expect 16.8.1 to be released tomorrow, no later than 24 hours from now.

        Thanks for reporting this regression.

              We've just published Bridge 16.8.1 hotfix release with this fix, so you can update it from whichever source you obtained it (github, nuget, homebrew, dmg, VSIX, etc) and you should be able to get the expected result. And, of course, the original link to the deck test case now returns the expected result.

              Let us know if there's still something off if you notice.
