PowerApps: Cannot change app description!

Hello everyone, I would to report a weird problem from PowerApps: I'm trying to modify description for an existing app, but it's impossible.

I've tried multiple times to change text description for my app, relogging to PowerApp Studio, changing others app items and then description, but none worked.

I can modify app icon, app name and other app settings, but not the description: it's really frustrating!

Anyone else experimented this behaviour? Any suggestions (please, other than use Save As or export/import)?

It's looks like a bug...

I just tried it and was able to change the description without an issue.

 

1) Edit the App

2) Go to Settings

3) Change Description

4) Go to File menu > Save and Publish

5) Close App, reopen and Description is as changed.

 

Are you sure you are both saving and publishing after the description change?

Probably is just a Power Apps bug. If you try it another time/day, you might do it..

Just like @Pstork1,  I'm also able to change the description without any problem.

You might want to try a different browser to see if that makes a difference - perhaps it might browser extension, or some other browser configuration that's causing the bug.

Thank you very much to all for replies!

I followed @Pstork1 instructions and effectively it worked.

The problem aroused because after changing the description, I navigated to other Settings and then, coming back to description, my text was lost; changing app name or sliders works immediatly, where description not!

My problem is solved, but in my opinion, it's an UI issue of PowerApps Studio.
