Learn@UW - Change File Dialog on Edit Artifact Page Requires First Pressing Remove Icon

On the "Edit Artifact" page of an ePortfolio there is a Change File button to allow replacing the existing file with a new uploaded file. The dialog brought up has just a 'remove' ( remove ) icon to delete the existing file that has to be pressed before proceeding to upload the replacement file.

Without on-line instructions, this can be misleading.
