Hidden columns visible after refresh



Since the july 2017 version of Power BI Desktop we encounter that all columns that where marked as 'hidden', are 'unhidden' after a refresh of the data. Is there a setting we can change this behaviour or is this a bug. So we are still using the june 2017 version to workaround this issue. The lastes november 2017 release still has this behaviour.


The source we are using are views in a SQL Azure database.

Hi @qics_jh,


I'm not able to reproduce the issue on my side, both tried the Import and DirectQuery mode. Does this issue happens to the specific Azure SQL database table? Please try the latest desktop version 2.52.4921.581 64-bit (November 2017) and test again.
