Cannot unify address and bytes when passing address in the contract editor

I’m using the online contract editor for some quick prototyping and bumped into a problem. When I try to pass an address as an argument at Call Function then I get the following error: {“data”:{“reason”:“Type errors\nCannot unify address\n and bytes(32)\nwhen checking the application at line 40, column 34 of\n transfer : (string, address) => ()\nto arguments\n “12345” : string\n #c7ab21190d90ce6901c784964864c5885259d23d25a7e6d3723787285c26e933 :\n bytes(32)\n”}}.

The arguments I’m providing are: 12345,ak_2WwGGLTB48pPoSc5hzzDrCxvWjhRnx34YJtwxGMYvTj6PSqHxR

What am I doing wrong?

From the error message it looks like the online contract editor is trying to be clever. It has turned 12345 into "12345" which is good since it should be a string. But it has also turned ak_2Ww... into #c7ab... which is not good since that is a byte array rather than an address :thinking:
