Patch action resets Gallery selection

So...apparently this is normal behaviour from what I've gathered from previous posts, but is there any chance of stopping it?


When an item from my gallery is selected and then a button with a Patch is clicked, it resets the selected item on the gallery.


This is a bit annoying as the user might want to do further changes to the same item.


Any idea on how to stop this behaviour?

Yeah, in general you don't need to jump through such hoops to get to this, but in the scenario where you impact the Items property in a significant way...the gallery will fight you.
