Sudden appearance of red x's

Today, when I opened up my powerapps app, I'm presented with a ton of red x's.  It appears to save and publish fine, but any ideas whats going on?

I know they can be ignored but when you also train people on using the tool, it's difficult to say "please ignore" when sometimes they might have a true error. This needs to be resolved by Microsoft.

May 2021 and the issue is still unresolved!

Same issue with me! 28 Choice fields to be resolved every time I try to edit the app.

Been having this issue for years. Really not a problem. When published with the red x'es it will still work fine. It just shows that you have a data source issue, although there isnt really an issue.

And again - it is a runtime error caused by the load of the designer.  It is not an error in your app!  It's not going to get a lot of "fix" attention because it is not an actual issue, just an annoyance.

Another app builder here with the same issue.  Open the app for editing and I get the errors (red and white X, red squiggly lines in the function/formula box under the data source, and the "data source supplied to the function is invalid" message in Details).   Resolves when I clear and re-add my data source.

 

Love PowerApps, and I understand it's only an annoyance.  But still needs resolved (IMHO), if only because it messes with your head.   You end up spending a lot of time second-guessing yourself, and trying to distinguish what's a real error and what's a "false positive."

I think the issues of red x's were resolved. Thanks a lot!

It is true that it is just an annoyance during app building but it is breaking my apps in my circumstance.  I am using ALM by using a solution in multiple environments.  The app works fine in the Dev, unmanaged, environment.  When I export and import into the managed, Test, environment, all of those combo box choices functions are broken and I get errors in the app and no dropdowns work.  Editing the app in the managed solution to "fix" is obviously not the way to go.

 

So this is a severe bug in this case.  I am unable to roll out the ALM environment structure due to this issue and unsure how to proceed as I can't find a workaround.  Anyone aware of anything or is there a planned bug fix?
