PowerApp not editable anymore, Formula bar stuck showing FirstScreen.Fill

EDIT: Please, if you're only reading/posting here because you want older PowerApps versions, please open your own or use a different thread.
I still have gotten nothing helpful back on my original post:


image.pngPlease be so kind as to read my full post before responding.
Thank you for your consideration.

I have reported my issue already previously in the forums
https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Discussion/Formula-input-line-stuck-showing-wrong-grayed...
and have already submitted a ticket
119050324000645
but, I have so far not yet received anything useful to fix my issue.
Thus, I am re-posting again to extend the reach of my call for help.

I only have one (but the most complex and important one) PowerApp that is affected.
I had/have one quite complex PowerApp that I have started working on last November.
It contains, among other things, 13 MultiSelect Option fields in Dynamics and a workaround for the ComboBox in PowerApps using Checkboxes since my bosses didn't like the whole-screen-filling-irritating-x-in-corner-look of the ComboBox (when pulled down) in the Android App.

That App worked fine until April.
Then I had to switch on the new CDS/OptionSet features for various reasons
https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Discussion/PowerApps-Dynamics-9-MultiSelect-Option-Set-e...
This naturally broke all existing MultiSelect OptionSet related properties, and introduced (in a previously working app with 0 errors) ~1000 (mostly syntax) errors.

Working through the last month, I had managed to fix most of these

but now (passing through several PowerApps versions in the meanwhile) I am stuck at a state where PowerApps Studio effectively prohibits me from continuing my work.

The user interface seems responsive.
But:

  1. The formula input is "stuck" showing the Fill property of the First screen.
    When I actually select this property, the formula input appears working
    image.png
    however, changing the Lead.Fill property does nothing, the change doesn't take.
    Selecting any other control/property still yields the formula line showing Lead.Fill, though grayed out/disabled.

  2. Trying to Save the App does nothing, the same for Save As, and Save on Computer
  3. Changing App properties and/or Advanced settings does nothing.
    The feature toggles don't work
  4. The PowerApps Studio tab and Session at some point times out without me having been able to do anything.

For all intents and purposes I have apparently wasted my time since the switch to new CDS features since I can't currently finish this PowerApp into a workable state.
Please do comment if you have experienced a similar issue.
If you do actually work or know someone who works in the actual PowerApps team, please do help me escalate my issue.
The support staff from Mindtree Limited have not been able to help me yet.

Hi @Raynok1 ,

Thanks for trying to help but I think you didn't read my previous posts:

Also: Please, if you're only reading/posting here because you want older PowerApps versions, please open your own or use a different thread.
I still have gotten nothing helpful back on my original post.

Thanks,
    Sa.

Noted I've edited my comments, with regards to the latest 3.19052.19 there are also issues so just keep in the know.
Here is another studio version to test out https://create.powerapps.com/v3.19052.17.114642643/studio/# . Hope you win.

@SaWu Sorry for not responding sooner.  There has been few on-going issues the last couple of days with Gallery control.  Any attempt to publish early last week or since Friday may have resulted in an unstable version being saved. A hotfix to address the issue has just been deployed.  The updated Studio version is v3.19052.20.115177617.

If you could re-publish your app for the fix to take effect, at least we can rule out the stability issues we have been seeing--please remember that it make take up to a few minutes for the newly published app(s) to be packaged and available to players (web or mobile). 

If your issue still persists, we will address it then.

Once again, we are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.

Hello @_Corey_ 

 

From your writing I have to assume that you had forgotten what my original post was about:

I have problems with PowerApps Studio:
I cannot save.
I cannot republish.
I cannot change advanced settings.

I cannot edit formulas because changes don't persist.

I cannot see properties I have selected because the formula bar shows something else.
I do not, as far as I know, have any stability issues, in particular not with the Gallery control, since I cannot save, publish, and run anything in the first place.

Modified (Last time succesfully saved but using restore!):
5/16/2019, 11:51:59 AM, Release 3.19042.26
Here's a screenshot of my App versions, note the PowerApps versions.
This shows exactly how successful I have been in saving or editing anything.
Please don't even mention publish in front me!

I just tried editing my PowerApp, and I still have the same problems.

My issue persists.
Please address it.
This is not an inconvenience.
This is FUBAR!


I am also in touch with support via Mindtree who I sent to Fiddler traces to.
I don't even know if they were received.

Thank you,
    Sa Wu.

@SaWu Hey did your issue get resolved?

I am in the same situation as you and looking for a feasible answer so I don't have to redo all my work all over again

Thanks

Hi @VeraRizvi 

My issue didn't get resolved at all!

I literally worked around it by re-doing everything from scratch (but including some preview features, a switch to which had led to Studio getting stuck for me, from the get go).

Best of luck,
    Sa.

I am experiencing the same Issue

 

Nothing is editable and not able to save, re-publish or change any of the settings

 

I have tried reverting to an older previous version of the App and still giving me the same Issue

 

Please could you let me know what is wrong? This is affecting the business solution

Could the issue be to do with the App Checker? 

 

As it keeps on loading

 

This is exactly what I am experiencing. The App checker just runs and runs and runs. It seemingly prevents anything from being editable(including saving).

Hi All 🙂

let the app checker finish loading .. thats what i did.... IT loaded everything in 25 mins and then the app was fine and i didn't run into that issue again so far hehe.

Hope that helps 🙂
