Cannot get the Expressions editor to show, EVER!

I have a weird issue. I can't seem to get the Expressions box pop-up, the Dynamic Context box ALWAYS pops-up regardless of which icon I click. i have also tried to use the keyboard shortcuts (clicking Ctrl + Shift + Enter) and it's the same outcome. 

 

Step 1 - Click on Add a Dynamic Value or Ctrl + Space - Works as expected

Step 2 - Click on Expressions or Ctrl + Shift + Space - Does NOT work as expected

This is driving me nuts as I can't even add a simple text transformation! I have searched around on the forums and tried the following things as suggested - 

  • Changed the resolution of the monitor to various different ones, didn't work
  • Tried using a different browser (Firefox) where my primary browser was Chrome, didn't work
  • Tried clearing cookies, cache and all site data, didn't work
  • Tried using incognito mode (so it doesn't use any history/cache etc.), didn't work 
  • Tried using a different computer as well which has a much larger display, didn't work

I'm sure I'm missing something here - but I can't get a fundamental functionality to work and it's driving me insane! Any help?

Hi @_sayanghosh ,

 

Would you please take a try to turn off the Experimental Features to see if you could add the old UI :

I should also report that this issue seems to happen in the new style pop-up. For some boxes where the old school right hand side pop up comes up, I can see both Dynamic and expression as expected. Screenshots attached.

Hi @_sayanghosh

 

Could you please take a try to create a new flow with the Compose action to see if the issue still exists?

I have made a test on my side and the Compose action would as screenshot below on my side:

Hi Alice @v-alzhan-msft 

 

Thanks for your quick response. I just tested this, and for me the experience is just the same as before. Interestingly, I see that my experience is slightly different. If you see the image posted below and the bit circled in red, I see two icons - 1 for the dynamic content, 1 for expressions. Clicking both only ever opens the dynamic content window and never the expressions window. I see your experience is more like my second post, i.e. something that I see on limited boxes which work as expected. I wonder if I am getting some new UI (A/B testing) which doesn't quite work? Screenshot below.

Hi Alice @v-alzhan-msft -

 

Thanks - spot on! That fixed my issue and got me back in business. Thanks so much, appreciate that.

It does indicate an issue with the preview / experimental feature though, but I guess that will be fixed before the new experience goes GA.

Thanks again!
