Re: Improved app rendering issues

Thanks for taking care of the issue.


I just did a copy of one of my project from PowerApps.  To try the switching back to classing rendering.  It didn't fix the issue.

Re: Improved app rendering issues

@CWesener @FilipK Thanks for responding to this issue. There are a number of issues that switching to classic rendering fixes. Many things involving motion, be it scrolling a gallery to an animated menu coming in from offscreen, as well as the components involved, such as the items in a gallery, don't work well with the improved rendering. I would be happy to provide examples if needed, including screenshots.


If you search the forums for "render" you will find a number of threads discussing these issues. In most cases, simply turning off the improved rendering solves the problem. With the message popping up in the web studio that improved app rendering is going to be the only app rendering, you may be seeing many, many more of these threads. And when that change goes live, I wager you will see even more. Smiley Happy


If there could be some guidance as to best practices for the new rendering, it would be very helpful as many of us are not doing anything abnormal; we are just trying to add components to apps. If a change in the app building process is needed, getting that information could save a lot of future headaches for your teams and us as well.


Again, thank you for looking into this. It is appreciated!

Re: Improved app rendering issues

Troubleshooting a bit more here: 

  • My colleague exported the app in question and imported it as a new app
  • NOTE: Improved Rendering is "OFF" by default in the new app, yet the banner message ("Improved rendering...) is still displayed
  • Left this setting "OFF"
  • Problem still persists
  • Switched Improved Rendering "ON"
  • Save
  • Close
  • Open
  • Problem still persists


Another Issue we're having concurrently with this one: 

  • App is "stuck" ~1/4 of the way off screen. 
  • Zoom in/out does not solve
  • Have to min/max the browser (Chrome) window to clear the issue

Re: Improved app rendering issues

Hello @CWesener. Is there any update on this issue?


Will we have to push the release of our application out or will this be fixed by EOD CST?


Thank you

Re: Improved app rendering issues

There is a bug in Studio 3.18094 when Improved App Rendering is disabled where the ComboBox drop down doesn't correctly render adjacent to the control.  This should not affect Studio when Improved App Rendering is enabled or Players in both modes.  This has been fixed in version 3.18101 which is currently deploying worldwide; deployment is expected to compete by Thurday for all regions.


@jlister @systemcrash @ericonline When you enabled (or disabled) Improved app rendering, did you close and re-load the app?  This is required when switching between Classic Mode and Improved App Rendering Mode, or vice versa.


@ericonline Can you confirm that the ComboBox drop down issue persists when enabled Improved App Rendering, saving, close, and re-loading the app?  We have not been able to reproduce the bug when these steps are taken.
