Hierarchy | Matrix | Still showing plus sign at the bottom of hierarchy

Hello community, 


I have a hierarchy with 4 levels. Some rows are going down till level 4, some ends up at 2. 

If an article (row) only goes till level 2 there is still the possibility to expand the visual with a plus sign altough there is no level anymore:

Are we able to hide the '+' sign if there is no level anymore?


Thank you in advance

Hi! I have the same issue. Please vote for the idea: Matrix: Hide Expand icon when no drill down data for item. It's a simple fix 🙂

Hi  @Anonymous ,

After research, power bi does not support this function for the time being. You can only turn off all + signs in Row headers - +/- icons.


Or try to close Show items with to data.


I would suggest you add it as an idea on Power BI Ideas to improve Power BI on this feature. vyangliumsft_2-1637556843798.png
