Formula bar in report view

Hey guys.

I have activated the formula bar in report view because I need to be able to adjust my formulas on the go.

The problem is that it always come over whatever is at the top of the report layout, therefore I can't see the whole page.

Is there a way to have he formula bar above the page layout ? Just like in Excel you have it, and below it are all the cells and tables, they don't overlap ...


Thanks !

Hi @CharlieBigoud 


Unfortunately you cannot change the position of the formula bar, but what you can do is when you see it's all over your screen just use the drop-down kind of arrow on right side of the bar to expand or contract the same.


Hope this helps.

Hi @AnkitKukreja,

Thanks, I already knew about the arrow, the problem is that even when contracted to one line it still hides part of the page. All the time , and that bothers me a lot haha.

Thanks anyway 🙂

I also recommend you create an idea for it  in to improve the power bi.
