Data model scrambling upon opening file with new update



Within Power BI Desktop, the data model is scrambling every time I open the file a second time. I had all of my relationships and tables placed exactly where I wanted to see them to make sense of the data model and now every single power BI desktop report I open is scrambled with the newest update. PLEASE FIX! This is taking a lot of extra time to work through and recheck my work from previous archived files.

This isn't helpful but I just noticed that this is also happening to me.  You can arrange them back and save the file but they get rearranged again when you open the file.  This is terribly frustrating.

Yes, it does no good to rearrange them. Submitting a ticket.
