Is it possible to rename tables in Live Connection mode?

Hi,

 

When I rename a table in my tabular model and clicking Refresh in Power BI Desktop, the visual can't find the table and shows an error. Is there a way to update the .pbit to match the updated model?

Thanks @v-chuncz-msft, but it refers to Direct Query mode and my .pbit is in Live Connection mode where the Query Editor is not available (Edit Queries button is grayed out)

Well, seriously: in case of Live Connections (to Power BI datasets/AAS/Tabular),

is it not possible to rename a table (data model) without breaking all the visuals referring to it???
