Hi @Anonymous 


Do you mean Matrix not allowing horizontal scroll in Power BI Desktop? 

Please note that when you have enough row groups in a matrix so that they don't all fit in the viewport, the scroll bars are disabled. This is because scrolling normally only affects the values area of the matrix. If you've got lots of text data, try using a table instead? Hope that helps.

Yes, i used table earlier. However, there are multiple rows for a person with different skills data and i dont want to show repetitive attributes for a person in different rows. there is no option in table to merge the rows but matrix works like a pivot without repeating same information.

Is there any update or solution for this?
