Removing Report/Page Filter in Reading View

I have a report in the Power BI Service to which I added a Report Filter. I then went into Reading View on that report. The filter itself worked fine. However, in Reading View, I was able to click the X in the upper right of the Filter and it permanently removed that filter from the report. I was under the impression that permanent changes could not be made in Reading View. Can we clarify that? Thanks.

Re: Removing Report/Page Filter in Reading View

Adding to that observation, something is wrong or inconsistent with filters in the Service at the moment.

 

Page Level

  • Add a Page Level Filter and then switch to Reading View
  • Click the X to remove the filter (as Mark said, should this be possible?)
  • Go to another report and then go back to the original one, and the Page Level Filter is back

Report Level

  • Add a Report Level Filter and then switch to Reading View
  • Click the X *OR* leave it alone
  • Go to another report and then go back to the original, and the Report Level Filter is no longer there regardless of whether you removed it or not by clicking X
