New bespoke visualisations not retained in Power BI Desktop

I was playing with some of the new community developed visualisations yesterday. Having loaded up Power BI Desktop this morning it seems they have to re-loaded to be able to use them again. Is this working as intended?

@Bando I don't know specifically what actions you performed, but here is my experience.

1) When you download the PBIVIZ files, they are downloaded to your computer - they should still be there.

2) The customized visuals are only added to the specific report, not to the Desktop tool, so you need to add the custom visual to each report you want to use it in.

3) My assumption is that you are opening a new Desktop to create a new report, if it's the same file, you should be prompted to "Enable custom visuals"

I would also make a suggestion.  if you want to keep all of the visualizations, create a blank report with all of the visualizations imported and use it as your template for other reports.
