Powerapps went fubar



I have been customizing a powerapps form for a SharePoint list.  


I was nearly done. 


I clicked in the InputTextPlaceholder field.  I had a flashing cursor in the field.  I pressed backspace to delete the default text and add my own. 


Everything on my Data form was deleted.  I pressed CTRL+Z to undoe what ever happend. 


This is how it returned my data fields.  




This is not how it had layed out.      I am not sure if this a bug or what but it needs to be accounted for.   Now I have to rebuild the form unless some know how to revert to older one.  


I have cleared the cache and cookies and tried in other browsers with the same issue.   Another question why did powerapps save this when I did not save it?

It only did it this one time and I was able to resize the cards.

I thought this might be related to your problem.  The PowerApps editor is running like total crap for me all of a sudden.  Certain functions wont work anymore, like Select().  My apps are totally screwed up.


Have you checked your previous versions to see if there's a good save?:  On the page click the ... icon next to your app.  Select "Details" and then go to Versions.  You can restore a previous version from there and see if it's better.

Thanks for the heads up SynergyM


I looked for version but there weren't any.  I had not published it yet so it did not show me any. 


After I calmed down I noticed that all the fields and formatting were still there.   They were just rearranged and shrunk down. 

After resizing and moving back to their proper placement the form is working again.   Turned out to not be as bad as I thought.

Hi @meddlema I'm sorry you were experiencing this issue. Is this still occuring?
