Color Scales stopped working today

The color scales stopped working today.  I didn't make any changes or updates, but today's data displayed as a solid color and when I tried to go in and update the color scale, nothing worked.  Everything is displaying as the Minimum value now.  Assuming there's a bug with the new color scale functionality.

One thing I noticed though, it only stops working if the field I add in the Tooltips field well is the same field I have in the Value field well.  If I add any field to Tooltips other than the one I have in the Value field well, color scale still works.

Interesting, I get same result.  It seems like you don't need the same field in the tooltips as it now displays that field automatically as a tip.

Yes.  I actually didn't realize my bars were showing the value twice when hovering over them.  This issue actually prompted me to correct that and clean up my visualization.  Thank you! Smiley Happy

@js_ultimus@ferdsjoseph Thank you for all your detail information. I got information internally from PG team below: 

 

We plan to QFE the Desktop soon (a couple business days). Service will no longer try to upgrade (and sometimes break things), a fix is coming in two weeks for the web. Publishing from Desktop will keep the new conditional formatting rules of course.

Same issue. Color scales on all graphs reverted to defaults after November update.

Power BI Team

Update to the November release of PBI Desktop is avaialable with the fix of this issue.

Thanks @AlexGorev. And is the issue with the color saturation option having disappeared from the formatting pane also resolved?!

@AlexGorev here's the issue already raised on color saturation.

Here's the related issue which makes it impossible to repair the graphs which reverted to default on color scale: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/Color-Saturation-option-missing-on-charts/idc-p/568085#M3502...
