SSAS: Objects Randomly Disappearing

I don't have a fix or explanation for this but since I had a hard time finding anyone else with a similar experience online, I figured I should make a post about it. Have you ever tried adding something new to your SSAS model such as a table or relationship, and found it seemingly never appearing? You know for sure that you followed the right steps to create something but you can't find any trace of it in the interface? You're not alone. This happens to me quite frequently and has had me question my sanity until I saw it happen to a colleague too.

If things seem to be randomly disappearing in SSAS, just close and reopen your project in Visual Studio and suddenly you will find them right where you expected them to be.

I'd love a comment from anyone who can explain this or tell me if there's a fix!
