Saving flow does not retain changes



I am running into some issues where I am able to save changes but when I come back to the flow later in edit mode, I can see that the changes are no longer saved. For example: I have put a string function around some object and it saves fine.

Can you tell me more about the problem?
Is it possible to save the Power Automate flow sometimes and sometimes not?
Usually, it may take some time to save.
If you go back to the details screen while saving, your changes may not be saved.

It does not look like my original message displayed my screenshots.

But when I come back to it later, it is lost. This is a recurring issue.

The alternate soln was for me to save the string cast inside a variable - before reusing it downstream. This is persistent between saves.
