DropDown List resetting to default on Navigate

Drop down list reset when trying to advance screens. 


Error is only occuring outside of Windows Studio (eg Browser, or Mobile)


When a user advances to Screen2, the vaules input on Screen1 revert to the default. If the user returns to the screen, they can see the values have been restored to the intital value. If they select the value a second time, the value does not reset when advancing to Screen2. 


Is anyone else experiencing a simiiar issue?

I fixed the error by reverting to an older version, but would like some insight on to what could be causing this. I did not modify any of the screens in question.

This is a bug in 2.0.660 that is under active investigation. That is why going back a version fixes it for you.

I am still seeing this behavior in 2.0.681 and it is heavily impacting my users?

Hi, with the new Powerapps release it seems to be that the bug is back!

When I'm selecting my dropdown values and navigate to the next screen and then navigate back all my selected values are lost...

Same here. This bug seems to be back.
