Discussion Thread "Attach" missing - Unless Instructor posts first

Issue:  Option to Attach Files is missing from Discussion thread in student role.  Student sees nothing under the "p" in the Thread.

 

 

Already done:  Enabled "Attach files to discussions" within the Discussion Settings.  Refreshed the page, and logged out/in.  Still can NOT see the Attach option.  (Edit:  Ensured "Let students attach files to discussions" was enabled in Course Settings, under More Options.)

 

 

Weird Fix:  If I, as the instructor, go into the Discussion Thread and create and post a reply (ie "test"), then the option to attach files will appear upon refreshing the page for the student.  

 

Needed:  A solution where there is no need for me to post "test" for every single Discussion in the course so students can access the Attach link.

 

Thank you, in advance!
