Text formatting suddenly stopped working

I have a text field with the value


Text("5.13"; "[$-de-DE]€0,00")


which used to show "€5,13".



When I edit the app, this is still displayed correctly. However, when I play the app, I get "$5.13".

I did not change the app in any way. What is happening here?

Based on the issue that you mentioned, do you want to format the currency leading with ""?

Combine that with your description, I think it is a temporary issue for PowerApps. To avoid this problem, I can provide an alternative solution, please check as below.
