Alt+Enter behaviour - Alt shortcuts remain active

After pressing Alt+Enter to add a new row when coding a DAX measure, the shortcuts such as 'H' for Home, 'JT' for Table Tools, etc are remaining active. When I press Alt+Enter in other programs such as Excel, it picks up that I was using the Alt key as part of inserting a new line and therefore doesn't show the shortcuts/expects the next keystroke to be a shortcut. Within Power BI, it is waiting for the next keystroke to be a shortcut - and therefore keeps putting me out of my flow with writing DAX as I need to click back into the formula bar so that I can continue typing.


This is incredibly frustrating and needs to be resolved ASAP.



Status: Investigating

Hi all,


Can you provide us with detailed version information so that we can reproduce this issue?

Thanks in advance!

@SeaSnake ,


I'm not sure which version you are using, but I'm using Version: 2.119.986.0 64-bit (juli 2023) and the problem is gone for me. I think it was already gone in the previous version tbh.
