Bar Chart dynamic title - unable to place a text measure as the title anymore.

Hello Community,

I am having an issue in where I want to place dynamic titles into the title and subtitle of a barchart, with the end goal of showing Totals and Months of Month and Year on Year KPI's.


However before I even get to the harder calculations and formatting I cannot even add a text measure as a title or subtitle. 

I have also tried this with a formatted measure of a kpi i will eventually use and still same issue. I cannot select the text measure into the "What field should this be based on" box 


The only thing I have been able to do is throw in a column from a data table in, for example I created a blank column and I can select that but that is not what i am after.


is this an issue that is being looked at? 

I have found a work around for this months reporting but future reporting will need the dynamic title as my work around isnt perfect. 


kind regards,
