PBI Desktop throws and exception when clicking New Measure

In certain reports if I click "New Measure" in PBI Desktop I get an object reference error! This has completely broken my ability to support client changes. Please help ASAP

Turns out issue was a duplicate measure name! Would be nice if MS could at least prevent the duplicate measure name or give a usable error message instead of crashing PBI Desktop.

Solution is to double click and rename the measure and everything starts working again!
