Bug when using Format Text on my code?

Hi all,

I'm starting a new project and just doing some very basic startup, but already having issues.  I keyed in the following ONE LINE of code and no errors and it works fine:

Set(gOffcUsr, Office365Users.MyProfile().UserPrincipalName)

I click on "Format text" and it REMOVES "Office365Users." from the code.  It changes the above to the below (every character and space has a red squiggly line under it):


and then I get a red X on the control that contains the code that says this:


I know I can let it remain unformatted, but our team has decided on always formatting the code for our projects so that everyone's code is formatted the same.  It took me a while to notice that it was removing the "Office365Users." from the code.  Time wasted down the drain.  The last project I worked on with PowerApps a couple of months ago, did not remove the "Office365Users." when I formatted the code.  Fortunately, it was only one line of code.  If I had had a rather large function, who knows how long it would have taken me to notice it removed code.


I really, really want to fall in love with PowerApps - but seems like every time I turn around something silly like this happens and it costs me time to figure out why or come up with a workaround.  Is anyone else seeing this?  This ONE line of code is all that I have added - is this going to happen with all of my code?
