I have an issue with shared links with specific characters in the filename when combined with ?dl or ?raw parameter. When I replace the filename part with the ID of the file, the shared link does work (but that isn't the url returned by the API)
File Constitucion.pdf (without ó)
File Constitución.pdf (contains a "ó")
https://www.dropbox.com/s/y2f68dzf8vje3uv/Constituci%C3%B3n.pdf (Link returned by API)
(Doesn't work -> redirected to dropbox.com) https://www.dropbox.com/s/y2f68dzf8vje3uv/Constituci%C3%B3n.pdf?raw=1
Is this a bug or is there a specific reason for this behavior? And would it be possible to get the shared url with file ID in return of the /get_shared_link_file call to prevent this from happening?
I appreciate if anyone can help me out with this issue.

When do you expect that this is solved? Is this a matter of hours/days/weeks?
I can't give a guarantee, but I expect this should be solved soon. It will likely be on the scale of a day or two, if not sooner.
