Editor keeps saving and closing and reloading over and over

I have a complex app that I've been working on for weeks that all of a sudden I can no longer edit. When I open any editor it stays open for about 20 seconds and then says saving to power apps, then says closing, then says reloading.there is not enough time to do anything or evaluate anything before it closes automatically. The only thing different that happened was, yesterday a message came up about the schema changing and a variable being reset and I said don't show again but I believe it's related to this somehow and now I can't get the message to show again or do anything.

I replied in a similar thread, but I'll reply here too: 

This has been happening to me too all day while troubleshooting an app. If I hit Save and Reload, I'd become trapped in a never-ending cycle of the app saving, closing, and reloading itself without any input. Definitely odd. However, a workaround, for now, at least seems to be hitting "skip" and / or clearing browser data (cache/cookies). A combination of those two appears to have stopped it from locking me out of the editor for now.


It seems to be happening to enough people that hopefully it catches Mircosoft's attention.

@DDCJOEE and @PhilD ,

If you lodge a Support Ticket with Microsoft it will come to their attention

Replying here as well more comments = more microsoft people possibly seeing this lol, 


happening to me as well after not touching the app for 2 days, hopefully this will magically be solved like those other errors that microsoft doesn't communicate and gets magically fixed the next day 

Yes @Anonymous ,

There are community support team members on this forum (I am not one of them) and they may see a pattern here, but a support ticket will put the matter immediately to MS attention, particularly if you mention that there has been multiple instances.

will do thanks 🙂 

@Anonymous  Good morning!


Were you able to enter a support ticket for this issue? Not sure if it is important that we each do that or if one is enough, assuming the issue has the same root cause. I can enter one later today if we think it is necessary.

So this is really killing us...  I was going to dedicate this week to completing this and now I sit and can't even open the app any longer.


I made a copy of the affected app and tried to quick switch over to the data sources and remove them in the 15 seconds or so before it started closing automatically, thinking that perhaps I could remove the one causing the issue get somewhere that way.


This proved impossible though because this message appeared and then the editor closed the app.
