Trying to merge an overlap file causes the screen to flash, but nothing happens, the file still remains overlapped. Trying to merge from the CLI also fails to resolve the overlap.
The reason why the merge was failing is due to the file format of the element in the workspace. The format of this file is MAC.
You will need to convert the format of the file from MAC to Windows. Such editors like NotePad or EditPlus allow you to convert file formats.
Once the file has been converted to Windows, perform the merge operation again.
