Dynamic Height and Y-position of visuals

Dear all,


I'm recreating a Sharepoint report in PowerBI. In the Sharepoint-report all records of the matrix are shown, so the amount of records determine the height of the visual. In my Sharepoint-report, the Y-position of the matrix is always 20px below the underside of the visual above (even when the visual above is 50px or 500px high). Is there a way to achieve these two functionalities in PowerBI in 2021 (like you can write adaptive height and y in PowerApps)?


Thank you in advance

Hi @ZeDe ,


It is not possible in PowerBI. The auto size of a visual is not available now. After the size of a visual is fixed, it will not be changed conditionally based on the content.

PowerBI added the ability to show and snap-to a grid, which makes lining things up easy.

You can turn that feature on by going:

Open PowerBI > File > Options & Settings > Options > Preview Features > Gridlines & Snap to Grid

Once that's on, go to View on the ribbon and turn on the grid.

Alternatively, you can alter the X Y coordinates of each graph, but that's much more time consuming

I don't think this is possible in Power BI Desktop. The visual boundaries are a fixed size.


A paginated report (Report Builder) can do this sort of thing but is a very different piece of technology.
