When I want to create a new dashboard, I often edit a prior dashboard and “Save As”.
When trying this, I run into an annoying bug.
When two maps are on the same dashboard, the old Map 1 and the newer Map 2, and I want to create a new Serial Chart that references a data layer from Map 2, a bug forces the same data layer from Map 1 (older) to be used, even if I select the data layer from Map 2 (the correct newer one).
This makes my Serial Charts dependent on a data layer from the wrong map, creating many problems further downstream.
For example, when the charts are completed and I try to delete Map 1 (no longer needed), I get the error message “Warning: X dependent elements will be deleted”. Upon deleting the map, the newly created Serial Charts (which should be dependent on Map 2, not Map 1) are deleted.
