Hi @jonasarnout

 

Did the issue happen in Power BI desktop or service? 

Is the reproduce that: right click on the report page then choose rename Page, press Delete key directly?

Pbi desktop, MS store version (didn't try installer verion)

I know from experience that there can be differences between the 2 versions.

 

1) rename the page (dubble click or RMB rename)

2) highlight the text you wish to delete (by mouse or shift + arrow keys)

3) press delete key on keyboard

 

as a side note that is quite anoying and could be related to this issue

if you move your mouse cursor to the the windows task bar, the focus in PBI gets lost and the page name is no longer in edit mode ...

 

Maybe this cause the page to be promted for deletion

good thing the confirmation is required 🙂

 

Kind Regard

I have the same issue. It is now far too easy to irretrievably delete pages / tabs when renaming them.

In the latest build, duplicate one of your tabs. Then start to rename it 'TEST tab 1', but before you press enter to commit the change, go back to change the name to 'tab 1', and press enter to commit the change.

You probably used the arrow keys to go back a few characters, then pressed the delete key and pressed enter. You were immediately prompted to delete the entire tab, with 'Delete' as the default option. This deletes the page irretrievably, with no 'undo'.

If you were trying to rename one of your key pages, you now have to reload an old version of your file, losing any work you've done.

It should not be so easy to make critical mistakes.

This is really annoying and fustrating.

 

A real time killer for those who have to change a lot of tabs.

Hi @jonasarnout , @cygnex , @TM_Visual ,

 

I tested with Aug Desktop. The issue had been fixed. Please have a try. Hope it is working perfectly on your side.
