Strange behavior of Unsaved property of a Form


 Can somebody explain why I see following behaviour when editing a record in a Form?

1. When changing a Form field that already had values then any changes are causing the Unsaved property to switch to true, but as soon as I put in the original value then Unsaved gets back to false, e.g. original value of a text field "Test", I delete last letter -> "Tes" and Unsaved is true, I type in "t" again -> "Test" and Unsaved is false. That's a correct behaviour.

2. When changing a Form field that so far was empty Unsaved changes to true as soon as I'll start typing in a new value. The problem is, that it does not go back to false when I remove what I just ttped in, so the field is empty again. This seems like a bug in PowerApps. Or Am I doing something wrong?

This makes the Unsaved property kind of useless. 😞
