I want to format the Timeline 2.4.0 in my themes.json file and import that theme in my other reports too. The problem is I don't know the properties of this custom visual. I don't want to format this timeline control with the visual level formatting options since there will be a lot of repetition to reproduce the same effect in other reports. Can somebody help me with that?

Here is the link of that custom visual:

Thank you!

I am using Sankey 3.0.3 custom visual. I have set Display Units as Millions in Data labels. But in tooltip, the formatting appears for some links and for some links it does not. Even the columns/measures used are formatted but that formatting does not appear in Sankey visual tooltip.

Does anyone have issues with the title space padding within the Horizontal Bar Chart v 1.5.7? The first bar is always cut in half by the tile regardless of the font size and bar settings. I wonder if there's a way to get around this.

This morning (AEST) we have noticed that the Chiclet Slicer from AppSource is causing glitching in the PowerBI Service. It is difficult to change the selection in the slicer and matrix visuals are flashing until this custom visual is removed from the page. I noticed a week ago that the visual had the below note on it:


I wondered if the issue is a result of the new version. Is this a known issue. Would be great to know when it will be fixed, in the meantime we are switching all reporting away from this visual back to the standard slicer.

I have also come across the same issue today. Worked perfectly fine until today. Now we are seeing lots of screen flickering on reports that contain the chiclet slicer. 
Will be intersting to know if this is to be addressed in the version

I'm having issues with the 'Parent' field of the visual. There are 8 Items but the Gantt Chart is only displaying 6 

Gant Chart displays this


But the Number of Paren Items is as follows


How can this be correceted?

The lines that go across the milestones look terrible and it would be such an easy update to give us control of this. Can we PLEASE get this updated so that they can be removed...

Or if someone knows how to contact Microsoft over this please let me know.

Anyone having any issues with the Pie in the Aster Plot 1.4.0?  I find the Details Labels disappear outside the boundaries of the visual.  See the below image where the label for the left hand pie slice is missing.

I have tried Stream Graph in PowerBI desktop (From more visual option). The graph has a bug which needs to be fixed. 

The bug is Y axis of the graph is not alligned propery with the visual.


For Ex- if I have a count of 1 closed ticket for specific month than as per the Y axis of the stream graph it is 0.5 and NOT count of 1. (Screenshot attached)


In the graph you can see "ExplorePlan" application has 1 closed ticket for Apr 22 but as per the Y axis of the stream graph it count is between 0.4-0.5 value. which is not correct.

Morning all,


I am relatively new to Power BI and i imagine this is a fairly simple thing to do but i cannot work it out, I am trying to filter out words from the wordcloud visual such as "the", "and" as they provide no insight. I would really appreciate any help anyone can provide me around how to do this.

i am facing a problem for last few months in chiclet slicer, when i am opening my report it is taking 9 to 10 seconds for loading the chiclet slicer and due to which it is appearing late, is there any solution to load the slicer faster??

I am having a similar issue to a previous poster... 

The 'Text Filter' custom visual show me this error "To see this custom visual, add it to this report first: textFilter" once published to BI Service. Works fine in BI Desktop. Thanks.

Hi, bkara.  I was able to resolve my issue by changing the FIPS field in my table to whole number instead of text.  Once I did that, the visual rendered correctly.  I referred to this link:


Had to read it a couple of times before I actually got it into my head to check the field formatting. . .


Hope this helps.

Drilldown Choropleth Visual Issue:  The following has been noted in using the Drilldown Choropleth Visual for Microsoft Power BI - Filtering on First Level location causes inaccurate Second Level location geographical visual - For example filtering on States results in inaccurate depiction of County level mapping.  Also, if the source data does not contain a complete state-county representation, drilling down on the visual creates similar inaccurate representation of counties especially in cases where counties in different states have the same name.  This could be due to how the Json shape files are constructed, but I experienced similar results using different json files.  I may need to forego using this visual and defer to the Shape File visual which does not offer drill down capabilities.

Card Browser Visual is not working with the document id of one table, although it works just fine on another. Eliminating all discrepancies, the index column on both tables are the same data type, both are created exactly the same way, yet one populates into the "card" format, while the other remains blank. Any suggestions?

Document ID with first table - worksDocument ID with first table - worksDocument ID with second table - doesn't workDocument ID with second table - doesn't work

index column in both tables have the same datatype, generated from PBI's index column generator.index column in both tables have the same datatype, generated from PBI's index column generator.

Hi there, I've tried several times to download the Card Browser Custom Visual by Microsoft, but the "Add" button is greyed out.  I'm signed in when I try and download the app (and I tried under my other Power BI account too- same story).  What needs to happen for me to get it?

Same here, but at my side issue is only in the desktop version. I managed to add a custom visual in the online service. Maybe a workaround for the moment is to publish the report online, edit/add the visual in the online service, download the pbix and continue your work...

we are having the same problem here , do anyone have a solution already?
