Custom measure looses formatting when .pbix is saved and re-open

My custom measure looses formatting. Once .pbix file is saved, closed and re-opened the formatting is gone, same occurs after publish report for web.


Here its after applying format,


This comes after re-opening saved .pbix or web published



Oryginal measure format at data model is percentage.

Hi @marant,


Which desktop version did you use to create the report? Based on my test in Power BI desktop latest version 2.46.4732.721 64-bit (May 2017), the Percentage format of the measure will not lose once reopen the .pbix.


Please update the desktop as ours. Also you can download the attached .pbix file then open in your environment to see if the Percentage lost.
