Possible bug with power automate file name

After creating a flow when a file is created in a folder, these are the options that power automate is giving to me.

Hi @Gasp3r_ ,

 

The filename is Base64 encoding of the actual file name.

 

Save it as a string variable or use base64ToString()

FYI: Hidden in the trigger header the plain text file name is there: 'x-ms-file-name' .  I don't know why Power Automate doesn't show this as dynamic content:

when you enter the expression triggerOutputs()?['headers']['x-ms-file-name'] it appears as dynamic content in the input or value fields:
