Power BI Desktop formula bar selection highlighting breaking

Selecting any portion of a measure formula in Power BI should highlight the selected text in blue
Since the March, 2018 release of Power BI desktop, selecting text in the formula bar doesn't work as expected. At seemingly random intervals, the blue selection highlighting disappears giving the user no indication that text is actually selected even if it is.
How to Reproduce:
I reproduced this in the March and April 2018 versions of PBI Desktop
Create a new measure and enter a formula on one line. For example: Sales Measure = CALCULATE(MAX(Facts[Sales]), Facts[Sales] > 1000)
Click and drag the cursor from the very end of the formula to the left of the formula. Note how the selection highlight doesn't persist, and turns on and off as you drag to the left.
You can also reproduce this with multi-line measures.
