Re: Ribbon in PBI Desktop stops working

I'm with Johan on this.  Frozen ribbon pretty much all the time.  It unfreezes after several minutes but it's really a show stopper.  I have to stop everything I'm doing to start something else (not using Power BI and hope that when I come back to it I can 1) hope it is unfrozen 2) remember what I was trying to do in the first place.

Re: Ribbon in PBI Desktop stops working

@mdslater I learned a trick in this thread that has worked everytime. Whenever the Power BI ribbon is frozen, I click over to another Microsoft program with a ribbon and then click back. It unfreezes the Power BI ribbon every single time. I always have Outlook open, so I just change focus to that and back.  I hope that helps you.

Re: Ribbon in PBI Desktop stops working

Same issue... Minimizing and Maximizing the screen makes the ribbon responsive again. Lastest Release. Been happening to me for a while.

Re: Ribbon in PBI Desktop stops working

I am surprised that Microsoft has not fixed this issue. I have had the same issue over and over, and I keep saying that it will be fixed in the next release. Given that this issue has been around for well over 3 years and there is a release every month, why is it still here? I have been struggling with this for some time. I realise that there is a workaround by moving the focus, but that is not a fix. Thanks.

Re: Ribbon in PBI Desktop stops working

as of the november update, it is still happening. 

 

Version: 2.75.5649.961 64-bit (November 2019)

 

The app remains semi-functional, it is still possible to switch Report - Data - Model for example. 

 

Sometimes it unfreezes, other times the app must be closed and reopened.
