Re: PowerBI Desktop Freezes [Not Responding]

Count me in as well. What's worse, I had done a couple of hours of work and when I made a change to a visual it locked up. I should have been able to just kill the session and re-open the file to it's previously saved state; which did not have the issue. Sadly, it is now stuck on whatever caused the problem and I have to recreate the file from scratch.

 

There should be a switch or function to open the pbix without calculating so one can delete the problem visualization.

Same issue for me and hoping for fix soon.  Is there any way to remove the visual in the file causing the problem?

I have been having the same experience.  I'll watch my perf monitor and PBI will end up consuming my 8GB of Ram and will have to exit and re-enter.  I've removed the matrix table and will see if that was the cause.

I am also facing the same issue? Anyone knows the root cause and the fix?

Re: PowerBI Desktop Freezes [Not Responding]

I see that this thread started 3 years ago. Still not allright. I have encountered the 'freeze' issue too many times. 

Would have been nice to know why it is happening. A error message while reopening the recovered file would have helped.

Now for me, this happens for the same field and the same data set and is not when a maneuver is done.

I have multiple slicers on the page. I select one It is fine. I select another, it froze. I saw that it was not random and it was the same value being chosen on the slicer that would freeze Power BI. What could be the issue.

Re: PowerBI Desktop Freezes [Not Responding]

I had this issue for the first time today, I got around it by clicking the arrow in the top right of the GUI beneath the Close icon (^).

I clicked this twice, it hides the frozen ribbon then reopens it and upon reopening it was fully functional with all buttons displaying tooltip and the functionality returned.

I also experienced this quite often. In the latest relaease, I experience as a kind of new phaenomenom, that only the menu bar is not available (does not react to the mouse) while everything else (Visualization menu, Fields, tables etc.) still works fine.

Re: PowerBI Desktop Freezes [Not Responding]

I'm having the same issue, sometime worst, Power BI just close without warning.
I'm working on a report retrieving data from BigQuery Table, create a few visuals but is quite impossible to work with the file which has only 14Mb, every movement adding a graph, measure or even moving selecting something on the report is impossible, or give me frozen screen or shuttdown. 

 

I'm working on the desktop i7, 12GB ram, what else it need to run this??? So sad...

 

Thanks.
