Apostrophe in Assignment Filename Causes Problems in the Inline Grading Tool

Problem Description:

A student submits an assignment with an attachment that has an apostrophe in the filename. When attempting to view the submission within the inline grading viewer "Loading... Please wait while we render this file" appears. The “error” remains on the page and does not render the file, even though it is a supported file type.

Solution/Work Around:

Users should avoid including special characters in file names. However, when clicking the file's name under Submission on the right side of the inline grading screen, the file will render.  Instructors will have to either clear the students attempt and have them rename the filename and resubmit, or they will need to download the file and post the grade as an override grade.  The apostrophe disables the ability to post the grade on the Inline Grading Page.
