Add To Queue button missing from Prusa Connect

The "Add To Queue" button has been missing from Prusa Connect for over a month. This is true for both my MK4 and my XL. I am able to view the queue, but it is empty. I am able to browse files on the USB drives, but there is no button to add them to the print queue. I had previously used this feature many times, so I know where the button should be. See screenshot below for an example.

PrusaLink type: built-in

Printer type: MK4 & XL

MK4 UUID: 28e437a9-75ad-4dcd-b6d3-05cb826731b7

XL UUID: 7ee4384c-ab23-4865-88d5-ee46f39bb97d

I also just checked to confirm: this problem exists for both gcode and bgcode files.

RE:

Looks like the changed the way queuing is done. Instead of the button, now there's an add to queue option when you click on Print. I must say I preferred the previous approach, or using Add to Queue from the right-click menu. This new method requires an extra click.

Wow, thank you. That is incredibly unintuitive!

My day job is UX design, and I agree that this is a step in the wrong direction. What they were going for is nice, but it isn't clear that there will be multiple options available. A button labeled "print" seems like it will immediately start printing.

RE:

And to add to this, the latest is missing the duplicate print option in the queue view.  So now if I want to print 3 copies of the same item I either re-print on the printer or go through the above to add it 3 times to the queue.  Please stop removing features.
