Feedback on the pop-up notification when making a file online-only

Feedback on the pop-up notification when making a file online-only

When you right click on Mac to make something "offline-only" you get this message. According to a chat with support, it's supposed to indicate a "warning" that some apps might not be able to read files properly that are "online-only", however as you can see, that's not at all what it says. This pop-up is indicating that the function I'm attempting to perform, is happening "while there's an issue", which is not the case. This is extremely confusing messaging and should be simplified to reflect an accurate message to users.
