Selecting A Field within a GAllery in version 3.19013.14



PowerApps has just been upgraded to 3.19013.14.


Until the upgrade I could select a field within a Gallery and move the field anywhere  within the gallery within the screen.


Since the upgrade I can no longer select the field, only the Gallery can be selected.


I have tried pushing the Gallery to the back, I have tried bringing the field to the Front (Right click field, Reorder, Bring to Front), but I can no longer select the field.


How do I align my fields now ?

Same here !


I'm seeing similar sometimes. When I close and re-open the PowerApps studio in the browser it sometimes fixes it. 


Thank you @PaulD1 , I did what you suggested several times. Always the same problem !!


@PaulD1,  another thing, after adding a new gallery (after 3.19013.14), when I close PowerApps and I open it again, I can not select any control in the first line of this new gallery, so same problem as the old galleries inserted before realization 3.19013.14 !!!

Hi @NigelP,

Could you please share a bit more about your issue?

Do you mean that you could not select any controls within the Gallery?

I have made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned.

Please take a try to clear cache of your browser, and then re-create a new app, then check if the issue is solved.

In addition, please also consider take a try to turn off/disable "Improved app rendering (final validation)" option within Advanced settings of App settings of your app, re-publish your app, check if the issue still exists.


If the issue still exists, please consider submit an assisted support ticket through the following link:

Same problem with SOME of the galleries. I just recreated those galleries which fixed the problem.

Hi @v-xida-msft


If I switch off "Improved App Rendering" - Reload the APP - then the problem goes away.


If I switch on  "Improved App Rendering" again - Reload the App - then the problem re-appears.


I enclose a screen print of the Gallery.









After turning off the app rendering option the gallery items are usable again, but the rest is for $#*@


Rather not recreate all the galleries that are impacted in apps.  Bad enough that you have to periodically go through and manually "refresh"(retype) some variables (even though there are no errors and no differences in spelling) because they "lose" their connection.  

After a while it gets to feel like you have to periodically open up apps, go through every screen and every property and fix these things, not the galleries on top of that!!! ugh!!


For now it seems you are able to select the controls in the gallery by choosing them from the left pane...but it's a pain. 

Please fix this!
