I have noticed since the recent update that the merge feature doesn't always download the image. It may have been happening before, but it has happened a number of times since the update. After selecting the merge the dialog comes up as normal, but on the final page there is no mention of the image, either to link to an existing copy, or to download a new copy. Backing out of the process to select something else, then returning to the problem record will eventually result in the download - but it sometimes requires two or three attempts. A variant of the problem is that on one occasion the image name was weird - the full URL or something similar rather than a sensible name. Retrying several times finally produced a sensible name.
NB: This is happening with images I don't already have - it isn't just a case of linking to a previously downloaded image.
Has anyone else noticed this?
