How to add Dashed Line (Shape, NOT Chart) in Power BI?

Hi, I want to add Dashed Line in Power BI, just as a shape, not in graph. In Insert->Shape, I can find Line, but the Line is solid. I am unable to change it's properties to Dashed. Is there any way we can do that? Is anything available in the market? Some custom visual, maybe?

 

Any recommendation would be appreciated. Thanks.

Add the following measure and drop it on a card Visual then format as you need, you can adjust the height in the measure:

Dash Line =  REPT("|"&UNICHAR(10),20)

If you want to do diagonals, I recommend creating in DAX/importing/entering a mini table like this

Value1    Value 2

0             0

1             1

And then making a line chart from it. Remove all the axes, titles etc. and then you can style/size/place it as you like.

Add a rectangle, turn off "Fill" and "Border", and type in "- - -" as text & make it bold

Super easy to adjust the length of the dotted line by just adding more dashes and spaces, and optionally rotate the shape by 90 degrees for a verticle line!

@amitchandak , thank you for reply. Please see below image. This should clear things up. I added this Blue line through Insert->Shapes->Line. I want to make Blue Line Dashed.

Go to Power Point and create a Dashed Line. Sve that Dashed line as image.

 

Bak to Power BI, go to fill section in the Blank Button and add the image (Dashed Line).
