Selecting a relationship no longer possible in new modeling view (March update PBI Desktop)



Since march version (2.67.5404.581) it's no longer possible to select a relationship directly in the relationship view. Earlier this enabled users to quickly identify the columns that were used for this relationship in both tables connected. This was done by Power BI highlighting the columns in each table. 

This is no longer possible in the same way. For example if you have a table with a long list of columns where you earlier could select the specific relationship and scroll to find the highlighted columns on each side (which were a part of the relationship).

In the new march update for PBI Desktop you need to either open the "Manage relationship" view or open the relationship editor and then scroll sideways on each table to see the columns used in the relationship, which is not as intiutive.

Advocate I

I have to agree, the new Model view is horrible. Not only is the feature described by @Mawi  useful and now completely missing, but the performance of the view is pitiful.  Just moving a table around on the screen takes far more effort and time and frequently doesn't even work.  Sometimes the vertical and horizontal scroll bars disappear and prevent me from scrolling around the data model.  To solve this, I have to close and open the fields pane to make the scroll bars reappear.  While the new feature may be delivered, it is absolutely not an improvement.
