Hiding data Table while still using selected Data

I am using bookmarks to show/hide visualizations for my report. Right now my report has a table with my data in it, and once we select a value, and press a more info button, it goes to another bookmark which has the table hidden and more cards shown. In the August 2018 version that I was using before, it worked flawlessly, however my organization just updated to May 2019, and this doesn't work anymore. Now after I select a value and hide the table that the value is selected from, the value gets deselected automatically. 

So basically: 

bookmark1: Table & some data.

bookmark2: hiddenTable & a lot of data. 


All of this is within the same page. 

So my question is: Is it possible to hide a table while still retaining the selected value in May 2019 version of PowerBI Desktop?

Re: Hiding data Table while still using selected Data

Hi @hexzed ,

If it is convenient, could you share a dummy pbix file which can reproduce the issue, so that we can help further investigate on it? You can upload it to OneDrive and post the link here. Do mask sensitive data before uploading.

Re: Hiding data Table while still using selected Data

Hi @v-piga-msft.

This is the onedrive link to a test file that should replicate the error im running into. So basically, if you select the second person in the table, and then click on hide table, the visual filters will not remain showing the previously selected person. It automatically resets and goes back to the original information.

So basically, I want to show selected data even when the table is hidden. This was not a problem in the August 2018 version of PowerBI but unfortunately now it is (May 2019 Version). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
