Hello @thomass17080444 


Things look ok on aem-sdk-quickstart-2023.8.13173.20230818T110953Z-230702 with aem-guides-wknd.all-3.2.0.zip


  • Can you possibly try on a new September release  again?
  • If someone else also confirms on a September release, please report on https://github.com/adobe/aem-guides-wknd
  • Else try on older AEM SDK versions.
