I have a modern SharePoint Online list in which I have disabled attachments using the List Settings > Advanced Settings > Attachments = Disabled. When creating new list items, the form that appears still shows add attachments and it will still allow you to add and then give an error. When you edit and item, no field for adding an attachment to the list item shows.
When I go back into the advanced list settings, the attachments setting is still disabled but there is a tick in the box 'Add attachments column to default view'. I have tried unchecking this option, but when I save and go back to this page, the box is still checked.
Help, how can I hide the attachments option from even showing on the form?

Thanks @Ben Leach. I know that is an option for a work around, but there are multiple lists similar to this one and trying not to go change all of them. It definitely shouldn't still be showing.

Hey, I'm experiencing the same issue, I cannot use the build an app work-around. Lets hope Microsoft fixes this issue quickly.

@Ben Leach This was working as expected in the past for modern experience as well and customizing the forms for every list in a site using Power Apps is not a proper solution.

I'm also having the same issue. Just saw it today. It's not happening on all lists, but on a couple that I've seen. Setting has been set to Disabled for a long time. Tried enabling and disabling, but the field remains.

The attachment option when editing or creating a list item is no longer showing for me when it is disabled in the List's Advanced Settings. I guess Microsoft must have fixed it??
