Unable to delete files from the the File Type.
This also prevents new uploaded files from displaying in the File Type.
Create a new object Relation and limit object Types to “File”
Add the new Relation to a page
Use the newly created Relation and type a non-existent filename (e.g. 40h6j9rjg50) and add it to the relation using the “Create object” feature.
Now if you go to the Library entry of the “File” object, you can see the created file (e.g. 40h6j9rjg50)
If you click on it to open the file it obviously says “File not found”
If you click on the … it does not give you an option to delete the file, nor can you delete it from a File Set
Adding new files using the File/PDF/… Types stops working after having tried to open the non-existent file
In essence, it is creating the “Page” with a “Name”, but not triggering/populating any of the “Relations” in the “Template”.
Don’t allow the addition of non-existent files
Allow the deletion of existing and non-existent files

There may be a related or unrelated bug (can’t tell as cannot delete these non-existent files) where when using the File Type or Attachment Relation to add a new file, an incorrect filename from another file in that same folder is used instead.
Please describe a workaround for me to delete these non-existent files so that I can restore functionality. I have an advanced level of computer and software knowledge.
I’ve tried to do a full export (excluding files) and then an import into a clean account, but the same non-existent files persist in the File Type.
