Losing hierarchies when saving as template

With the latest desktop version, I'm losing my hierarchies when I save as a pbit. Is anyone else having this issue?

Hi @trebgatte,


I test on 282 64-bit(August 2016) and 642 64-bit (August 2016), I can’t reproduce your issue. Can you share us some detail information  to reproduce the issue?

I'm on the 282 release. I've already noted a difference in behavior if I Save As a template versus if I Export as a template. The Export clears all data whereas the Save As does not. I'm wondering if I did the Export. I'm still testing. 


Basically, the hierarchy is three text fields. Nothing special.

Am I behind a version?
