Hidden fields become unhidden after making changes in Power BI Desktop


We have a dataset in Power BI which we base our reports on. Whenever someone makes changes to the dataset, for example by creating a new measure, a lot of fields become unhidden in the datamodel, that were previously hidden.

This issue is quite significant, since it requrires a substantial amount of work to make small changes to the dataset, because a lot of fields has to be hidden again.
