Hmm. Just to clarify, I can see that the blackboard is a prefab. Are the lost references you mention also prefabs (or assets) or are they scene object references? Does this behaviour happen on the original Blackboard Prefab or on a Blackboard Prefab instance in the scene. I am just trying to replicate your setup, so it would be great if you can please share more details on that setup you currently have and facing this issue.
