Hi @Anonymous ,

 

One easy way is to find the layout you like, open the template file, copy and paste the layout into your pbix, and then drag the field values into visual.

This is not solved.  This is my issue too.  After getting things to work, I now want to make it look good.  How the heck to I apply a template (.pbit)to an existing (and comlicated) .pbix??

This doesn't address the question at all. This is not solved and everyone has this question. On with the search...

So true, that it isn't the solution. From the original file op the advanced editor in Power Query and code and copy the M code for each table and paste it in the new file in Power Query. (You need a table already in the new file - that can be an empty table: the paste will overwrite all M code). Repeat for all tables. Now you can copy your visual from the original file and paste in the new file: they will link automatically to the tables you copied the M code for. Repeat for all visuals.

I thought its solved, but simple copy doesnt copy the colors , background and structure, so its not help
