How to remove this unwanted box from appearing over text

Once I publish the dashboard online, everytime I click a new page, this black box appears over the text. Can anyone help me to remove it, thankCapture.PNG you!

We have noticed these strange black boxes suddenly appear in all our reports published to the Power BI Service. Very annoying. They were not there until recently. 

Update: they appear when you open a report from a workspace; if you open the same report from an app, the black boxes aren't there.

Another update: I spoke to Microsoft on Nov 11, 2022 and they have acknowledged that this is indeed a bug.

Hi @Colleen2494 ,


Click the text and check whether the "visual border" is turned on, if so, turn off it.

Hi, unfortunately visual borders are turned off. This box appears on other visuals within the page as well, including charts. This happens after switching between tables. it goes away after clicking on the screen, or on another chart, but I am trying to avoid it all together.


I even turned header icons off as well just in case, but still seeing the box.


Some times have debug in Power Bi So Rework Your Visual,Delete Existing Visuals and Created one more time newly.
