Lock placement of tables in relationships pane
The ability to 'lock' where tables are manually placed on the relationships pane would be very helpful. We have created a data model with security tables, secured dimensions, unsecured dimensions, and secured fact tables. When I lay out the tables in a specific way, the design is far more understandable than when placement is auto-generated. A 'lock' type of functionality to 'freeze' the table layout would be very helpful because I can more easily locate/verify (a) specific types of tables, (b) bidirectional relationships where they should be (and shouldn't be), and (c) relationship directions are accurate.
Thanks for submitting. We are looking to make some improvements in this area.
Just wasted another two hours reformatting the relationship view after addition of a new table triggered an autoformat. Please give us the option to lock this view down. An update on any progress since 1 Feb would be appreciated, as it doesn't appear to be resolved in the March update.
Please fix this.

This is a really major bug currently in Power BI and hopefully will get a solution soon. The diagrams resetting themselves is the only something that recently started to occur and is really frustrating. Please MS fix this soon.
Very frustrating when you have more than 5 facts and 30 some dimensions...it literally takes me an hour to redo it every time it changes.

There's also an issue for this. Currently, looking to reproduce the issue of auto-arrangement.

This is slowly doing my head in, can this be given some attention? I like my dimensions at the top and my fact tables at the bottom and I want that to ALWAYS stay the way i left it. Thank you.
Very frustrating to spend time arranging tables... and to find work undone next time you visit.
