Import Shape

Is importing shape into power bi possible? I tried to look for possible answers but mostly it's about shape map, which isn't the one I am trying to get. I want to use a different shape which is unavailabe. PBI only has basic shapes and rectangles. Can I import a quadrant like this below:

Hi rma1215a,

 

It depends on how do you want to use the shape? If you want it just as an image, you can download the quadrant shape without background from www.flaticons.com and insert it as an image in Power BI.

 

However if you want to create a visual out of it, you can use Infographics custom visual from Power BI marketplace.

 

If you find this insightful, please provide a Kudo and accept this as a solution.

@rma1215a Yes, it is possible to import a shape into Power BI. However, the options available for importing shapes are limited. 

You can try creating a shape out here: https://synoptic.design/

And then try to import in Power BI.

Hello, @devesh_gupta. Thanks for the response. Would you be so kind to tell me in which part of power bi can I import the shape?

@rma1215a 

You can follow these steps:

Download the latest version of Synoptic Panel from the OKVIZ website or the Power BI Visual Gallery.
Import the Synoptic Panel component into Power BI Desktop by using the three-dot button in the tools panel.
In Power BI Desktop, select File > Import > Power BI Visuals (.pbiviz) and choose the Synoptic Panel.pbiviz file that you downloaded.
After importing the Synoptic Panel visual, you can use it to create custom visuals from your shape created using Synoptic Designer.
