Add a line break to the title of a visual

Hi Everyone,

 

I have a number of KPI visuals where I want the title to include a line break so that when I wrap text, the subtitle is on another line.

 

I have a number of these KPI boxes showing the same stat but they are filtered by region. I want the title to display Region and then the definition of the stat on a separate line.

 

As an example:

 

England

Month to date sales daily run rate

 

But I can't seem to add a line break after the region, so I end up with:

 

England Month to date

sales daily run rate

 

Which looks horrible and looks worse because each region is a different length of characters. Is there a way to add the line breaks? I tried adding a load of spaces but that didn't work.

 

Thanks in Advance,

Hi @PowerBIWhat ,

You can try to create a measure to store the title with a line break, apply it for title conditional format and disable 'Word wrap' option:

Title = "England 
Month to date sales daily run rate"

I was able to find a Unicode character that isn't filtered out in the visual title text box. 

 

If you add a space after your title then add as many (ㅤ) characters as necessary to push the title box to the next line.

The character is called a Hangul Filler (U+3164).

fyi, once u publish it to the web all or these Hangul Fillers will vanish. Amazing work microsoft

What a find!  Make sure to test across browsers.  Power BI Service does not guarantee pixel perfect rendering.

Don't forget to take WordWrap OFF for whatever your using.

Problem with this solution for me is it does not expand the title area and thus title text goes over plot.

Great. Is there a way to make region dynamic? Adding the field to the measure

I played a bit with UNICHAR() but none of the usual suspects seem to work. Feels like the Power BI team does some severe filtering on the strings that are sent to the title renderer.  Might be worth to raise this as an idea.
