Hi @Rafsar,


I'm not able to reproduce the issue in Power BI desktop version 2.54.4970.961 64-bit (January 2018). Did you run 64bit or 32bit desktop? Did this issue occur frequently or occasionally?

Hi @v-qiuyu-msft,


I'm running Power BI 64-bit desktop version 2.54.4970.961 (January 2018).

It occurs occasionally, turning difficult to myself to reproduce again.


This is the printscreen I took at the moment of saving the report and crashing.
