Recently, my PowerApps editing environment has been acting extremely slow and buggy.
Sometimes when I type something into the formula bar and press enter, it will look okay for a few seconds and then revert back to contain only half of what I typed. For example, if I was to change the fill property of a text box to "White", it would contain "White" in the formula bar for 1-2 seconds without updating the fill color, then revert back to "Whi" in the formula bar and show an error.
It's also taking 5-10 seconds just to select an item and have the formula bar switch to the property I want to edit, and even longer to insert items or change their properties.
Does anyone know the cause or a fix for this?
Thanks for your help!
Hi @Anonymous ,
I did not meet this kind of problem like your description.
You could refer these tips to improve your app's performance:
If the problem still exists, maybe it is about powerapps itself.
If so, I will report this to my product team. If there is any improvment about this, I will reply here.
Hi @v-yutliu-msft ,
I'm not sure what's causing the issue, but it's still there after the weekend.
This morning, it's actually worse. It started with properties being very slow to update. For example: when adding an item to a dropdown, it took 1-2 minutes to actually add it as a choice. I could see it in the array when I looked at the property, but not in the dropdown.
Then it moved to the issue I stated before of not completing the properties I type into the formula bar. For example: if I change a Fill property to "White", I can type out "White", then exit the formula bar, then go back and it will say "Whi" or "Whit".
Now it's taking 3-5 minutes just to open my list of apps in the editor.
Hi @Anonymous ,
Maybe this is related to your app's cache.
Please try to clean your browser's cache and update your browser to the latest version.
If you are using PowerApps in mobile device, try to click the "Clean the cache" in the app.
Then try again.
@v-yutliu-msft This has now gotten worse, to the point that it's completely impossible to edit or open apps in the app studio. The issues I wrote about in the original post continue until the page become completely unresponsive, usually within 1-3 minutes after opening up the app. Do you have any more ideas on how to fix this?
