Downloading .pbix file

I feel like I'm doing something very stupid here, but I can't work out how to download a report as a .pbix file... I go into the report, and click File>Download a report, and an alert comes up telling me "The report ____ was exported to a .pbix file and is available for you to download". I'd assume at this point the download would start automatically, but it's not, and I don't see any link to click or anything either! Am I going crazy?

Re: Downloading .pbix file

It does seem to be fixed now. Seeing as it's not just a plain old download but rather all wrapped up in JavaScript, maybe my browser was failing to load the script or something. Who knows. A bit odd, but a few hours later and all's good!

Re: Downloading .pbix file

@callum A couple things. First, the report had to have started as a PBIX file that you uploaded. It can't be a report that you built in the Service.

Second, I just tested this and it works for me, so it might be a browser issue? Something blocking the download?
