I came across the following image on another forum. And it displays - seemingly - a working Refilling Charm!!!
I realise this is an illusion - but how on Earth does it work!? :lupin: :dementor:

The classic way to do this is to fudge the diagonal cut. In this case watch the corners above the bottom left end of the diagonal cut, as the one removed has a bigger partial piece than the one that replaces it, so the animation is hiding the addition an extra piece spread out along the diagonal cut.

Thank you so much!  :flower: This was driving me up a wall.

And yet, once pointed out, it is easy enough to see!  :thumbup:
