Tabular Display Folders corrupts BIM model


When adding folders to several measures and attributes the next time you open the Model file you receive the following error:

An error occurred while opening the model on the workspace database. Reason: ReadElementContentAs() methods cannot be called on an element that has child elements.

If you open the model in code (xml) view and remove the annotation named "BIDS_Helper_Tabular_Display_Folder_Backups" the file will open.

Luckily this is a known issue that I coded a workaround for over the weekend. Read more about it here:

I'll contact you through Codeplex and get you a private beta build of this workaround.
