VPC/CIDR IPv4 issue


Hello, Good day. Just started learning how to write IAAC on Cloud Formation using my text editor and I noticed something I don't understand.

Scenario 1 : If i create a VPC with an IPv4 CIDR ( it rejects on the AWS console as invalid.

Scenario 2 : But if i run it as IAAC (Cloud formation) on a connected text editor, it corrects the mistake and works but the error remains in the CFN template


I have screenshots incase this is needed.

Thank you
