Multiple search fields - Combo Box issue

I have some problems to use multiple search fields in my app

  1. I have SQL as datasource
  2. two comboboxes using the same datasource (dbo.companies)
  3. Comboboxes are on the same screen

The purpose of the first is to find supplier using name or VAT, second is to fill in counterpart, so the customer, again using name or VAT. 


A) It works only in the first combobox, but both are exactly the same and in both is SearchFields value set to:

["Name"; "VAT"]

 Is this known behaviour?


B) It is being reset to one searchfield every time I open web editor . 

  1. I change the value to one mentioned above
  2. I save it 
  3. I publish the version - two search fieds do work in published app (at least the first one) 
  4. I open editor and the values are immediately reset to one search field only  

Any clue why is this happening?

How is possible this is not solved yet? Is Microsoft even really aware of the problem? New in the community and new with Power Apps so not really sure how to report bugs ... I see this "ideas board" but this is not an idea this is minimum correct functionality of a feature that your product is already offering.
