Strange Problem when placing Monsters from the Compendium

Hello, I've encountered a strange issue since yesterday. When I place a monster token from the compendium, it briefly opens the player character sheet and then places the monster. However, the token lacks armor class or hit points, which is frustrating to input manually. Do you have any suggestions for resolving this? Thanks!

Hi A B.,  This is a known recent issue affecting some games (not all games). Here is a thread with more posts regarding this issue. Please file a bug report via the Help Center so that the Devs can track the issue. Include your Campaign Details url so that they can take a look at your game if necessary. You can find the Campaign Details url by going to, click the name of your game (not launch) and then copy the URL. 
Okay Thanks! So right now there is no clue on how long it will take to be fixed.

There is no timeline on a fix yet. My suggestion is to manually set up the token's bars and then save that to the Character in the Journal tab.  I know, it is a pain. One of my games is also affected.
I highly suggest copying the game and using the copy instead. It fixed the issue for me. I assume it is a load error for the compendium when you initially create the game.
