Every time you click from an embedded PowerApp to another tab, e.g. Files, and back again, the app re-loads from the beginning.
For some apps this isn't a problem, but the load time for PowerApps can be laborious and this just makes it unusable.
Would you consider stopping the automatic reload and give us the option to refresh ourselves?
This is still being worked upon. I hope to have more details in the next couple months.
