Measure built on top of a live tabular connection doesn't hold its formatting

Hi all,


I have a client who is on the latest release of Power Bi Desktop (v 2.46.4732.721), although this issue also occurs on the previous version (2.46.4732.581). When they create a new measure on top of a live tabular model connection and set the formatting, the formatting only persists for that Power BI Desktop session. When they save the file and close and reopen, the formatting reverts back to the default, which is especially unreadable for percentages and currency. Is this fixable? Thanks!

Status: Accepted



This issue has already been reported to Power BI team internally: CRI 37312059
Please refer to this thread. Fix will be available in June 2017 release.
Best Regards,

Impactful Individual
