Hi, could you please help me with this visualization? After refreshing our Power BI Server up to September 2023 Chiclet Slicer does not mark color for selected chiclet.

After 15.0.1113.169 refreshing the issue was resolved

I'm using the Power KPI custom visual and love the functionality that this provides. However, I noticed that the chart automatically defaults all values as whole/decimal numbers instead of using the formatting that the user defines for a given value/meausure, such as percentage or currency. I feel like this is an easy fix. Is this the right place to request such a change?

Hi, I have previously published a report using the pdfviewer visual to display a one-page PDF file. It works fine and I really appreciate the zoom in and out feature that can't be done using other image viewer custom visual. However, the recent update of the PDFviewer has changed all my PDFs to be stretched vertically and all the texts on it become unreadable. It also has the default export document feature turned on at the nav bar by default with no option to hide. However, clicking on it just brings you to the licensing page. May I know how do I go about this? Is there a way to downgrade or settings to deal with the stretched image?

we've just updated our Power BI Report Server to the September 2023 and have now an issue with the Chiclet slicers not showing the selection. They still filter the report page in the published version but the selection doesn't keep the coloured highlight to show which value was selected. In desktop it's still keeping the selected value highlighted, so not sure why this disappears when saved to the report server. Can anyone help with this?

I am using Chicklet Slicer in my report. I have almost every element accessible using the keyboard, but I cannot get inside the chicklet slicer by pressing the Enter key. I have updated its code such that the Keypress selects the next option available and it works when I click on the visual (get inside of it). When I use the TAB key to roam around the report it only selects the visual. Need help figuring out how can I get inside of the visual using the Enter key so that I can get my Keypress function working.

I am using the "Timeline Slicer" visual and on 04/09 it does not show me data. There is a way to force them to show. (Understanding that this date is a holiday in the US)

I've built a solution to show the actual and the target. These numbers are in %. Then, the visual calculates the KPI status comparasion doing the percentage between both values but not the differente.

For example:

Value: 80%

Target: 90%


Expected comparision value: 80%-90%=-10%

Here how the dashboard does the calculation: (80-90) / 90 = -11%


Do you know if the calculation method can be changed?

Hi everybody, 

I've recently created a custom visual that displays revenue produced over a 5 year period segregated by a certain company's assets.

The visual shows the variance year over year as well as the overall trend of revenue.

I created a dashboard that utilizes the chiclet slicer v1.6.3. I have it deployed on a PBI Service environment and I just noticed that when I hover over the slicers it now shows a tooltip? However I don't see any way to actually configure a tooltip in the visual settings. Am I missing something here? 


Seems to be resolved now as I no longer see the tooltip 🙂

I am working on a power BI project that requires the network navigator visual, I have about 3000 nodes and whenever I reach the 1000 mark the dashboard stops updating. I updated the Max nodes in the layout accordingly and I can also see the hard limit set in the github repo has been increased to 30000. I was wondering if I could get some help on this. Is it possible that the visual on the microsoft store has not been updated to accept the new value of 30000. Thanks

Hi Community / @Ranin ,


Lately we encounter issues with the Text Filter Visual from Microsoft. You need to type in twice the text you are searching for before it actually works. Is this a known bug that is being looked at?



Hi, indeed the first time I type in text, it empties itself.

Changing the text afterward however works fine.


Other issue, I'm merging multiple related PBI into one.

I use "Text Filter" in multiple pages, each using their own query. For some reason the search seems broken now, always returning the full dataset. That visualization doesn't have any "Sync slicer" options, so this seems very weird.


Do you know of any alternative visual?

OK I did some more troubleshooting

It seems that copy/pasting between Power BI's broke the field config, simply removing it and selecting back the same field fixed it. 😑
