Avoiding changes in source to break conditional formatting, color, etc?

I am maintaining a .pbix, consuming live from a SSAS cube.


My issue is that, if a name changes at source, from NetRevenue to Net Revenue. That breaks entirely all the conditional formatting and colors, and I have to re do it...


Is there a way to make a change in a cube that won't break the pbix, or is there a way in the pbix to prevent a change in source to break all the formatting?

@ovonel, No as long as you use Live Connection. Any rename at the SSAS level requires metadata refresh in Power BI and you have to remap the fields.
