Saving Data Model Viewer Layout between loads

I would like to use the data model viewer to review my data model. Unfortunately it seems that my design resets each time I reload. This makes this feature seem almost useless in this regard. Has anyone been able to preserve their design?

The Data Model Viewer should update every time you do a reload.  You can "Lock" the view using the small lock on the right of the screen and it will not update as your data model changes.

Are you looking to have some sort of version control ?

Version control would be a nice-to-have. But I wasn't even there yet. Your solution sounds like it would do the trick. I'll mark this as the correct answer later today after I try it out. This will be so helpful!

Sorry Lisa,

what if it doesn't work??

I take many minutes to fit tables and the whole view (many many tables). I close then reopen it (even not doing a reload) and all is the same than before... very frustrating... the same if I pass from Datamodel view to Page view.

Some help? Some log to read? (Some bug?)

Same in Nov2020 and Feb2021, but only in my server (on the customer one, it works perfectly).

Thank you.

Another update from Qlik support on my ticket in regards to issue QB-4205 :

Thanks to the Qlik support team.
