Lately, when I go back into my bar charts and change the data or column design, the columns or sometimes the entire chart disappears ... has anyone figured out how to fix this?

A screenshot doesnt really tell much ... literally the before contains the graph, and when I changed data - the entire chart disappeared

What method did you use to add your values onto your bars. and have you affected or added to the chart group in any way? The fact that you mention it still "previews" in your layer means it's still there somewhere, but maybe waaaay off outside your artboard??

I created column designs and assigned them to the bars.

That is really weird!! why would it move the chart that far off my artboard??

There have been other times when i've created a new chart, just one group of the chart disappears ... I cant recreate the issue to see if its moving those bars too ... any thoughts on that?

If you move the chart with the direct selection the it moves the parts not the chart, editing the values may move the chart to te original placement where the charts origin is. Could this be the issue?

I could definitely see the program glitching like that. I use the 'rearrange all' function to move my artboards around, wonder if the program gets confused.

I've checked that, nothing hidden, when its the whole chart its definitely moving way out from the artboard (super annoying when I need it positioned on the artboard exact) ... If I can reproduce the issue where just one group disappears, I'll look around and see if they are moving off as well ...
