how to resolve "unable to save document"

I'm not able to save my PBI file. Does anyone know how to resolve this error message? Already cleared the cache, so not sure what else to do to save my work. attached screenshot of error. If I try to signout and sign back in, it asks me to save first (which I'm not able to), and if I dont save, it says I may lose data....

@user9394 i have faced similar issues while doing some changes in the power query window and then those changes are not processing due to some error and powerbi will not allow saving file till changes are saved. this is kind of loop which is not easy to solve. You may try to save your code which you have the power query window against each table or query so that you dont have to write/make changes again in the power query. You can also try to disble loading tables which are cuasing the issue and then try to solve the issue. this way you can save your efforts that you have put in your power bi file.
