Power BI Update Issues

Hi,

 

I have just upgraded to version 2.31.4280.361 64-bit (Jan 2016).

 

I have found two issues and was wondering if anyone else has noticed?

 

- Text in text boxes disapears after doing a Report Refresh

- I cannot remove "Category Label" from the Card visual

 

Anyone else having this issue?

 

Thanks,

James

@jameslo30 The two issues you mentioned are indeed bugs. I can also replicate them.

 

For now we have a work around for both:

 

1. Cannot remove category label from card visual

Workaround: As mentioned by @greggyb

 

2. Text in textbox disappears on report refresh

Workaround: After adding the text to a text box, save the file, close Power BI and reopen it. Now when you do a refresh the text will not disappear.

@jameslo30 I can confirm that you cannot remove "Category Label" from the Card visual

 

If anyone has had a card visual that they've removed the Category Label from don't test this

 

you won't be able to remove it again - unless of course you close your file without saving which actually removed it again

Confirmed.

Text box text disappears on model refresh.

 

Card doesn't let you remove category label.

  • Workaround: Create multi-row card, remove label, transform to regular card - no category label. This will allow you to remove category labels.

I'm submitting two bug reports for these. I suggest you do so as well.

I'm also finding that some in-graph labels are not positioned correctly. For example, when using the scatter chart only the bottom half of the year displays when it's associated with the play axis.... Also when using the line and clustered column chart, dots are now visible following near the line, which wasn't the case prior to the update. 

 

Anyone else having these problems and come up with a work-around?

 

Thanks,

C.

Make sure you submit this as a bug report, as well. You can do so in PBI Desktop by using the 'Send a frown' option in the File menu, or by opening a ticket here for bugs in the PBI Service.

The forums are a great avenue for discussing issues, sharing thoughts / ideas, and troubleshooting, but they are not the official medium to submit bug reports.

Proper bug reports will receive more attention from the devs than forum posts.

Yeah, thanks. I did read the thread.  

 

Is anyone else having the this problem find a work-around.

Map Labels are blurry after update - Anyone else have this problem?

 

After many attempts to fix this today...

 

It seems that if the Page Size is set to anything other than Dynamic - Labels become blurry

 

I just reorganized ALL my pages from Dynamic to 16:9 because Dynamic doesn't show well on an iPad

 

But it's not only the 16:9 - any setting other than Dynamic and Labels are blurry

I am also getting the "Blurry Maps" in the background and its quite bad.

We have some exiting reports and suddenly they are looking pale on both desktop as well as the web portal.

 

Can we please look into it?

Hi Shuan,

 

I've noticed this in all versions of PowerBI Desktop. Sometimes the reports are blury, sometimes not.

I think it does make a difference depending on what your screen resolution is.

 

Another annoying thing in PowerBI (that I've seen in all versions) is sometimes visuals will lose their formatting for things like Titles or Text. I.e. I change a title to colour BLUE, but after a refresh or update the model, it will default back to grey.

 

Thanks,

James

Yes I can confirm the COLOR CHANGES in maps, column and bar charts - very annoying.

 

After you've set the Data Colors for categories that you want to look the same across all pages - they just randomly change.

 

In fact sometimes colors change on items you are using the defaults for but at least you haven't set those.

 

Seems it was happening less lately but still does.

 

Have not said anything about this because we had bigger issues to deal with and still do.

@greggyb - I'm checking if anyone on the forums are having a similar issue before I submit a bug report. It's helpful to find out if it's just limited to my computer.

 

I'll report an issue if it's replicated elsewhere.

 

Thanks,
James

@jameslo30, it's a bug even if it's not replicated. Like I said, the forums are a great place for discussion, but it doesn't need to be confirmed by others to be a valid bug report.

@greggyb - Are you having this problem also?

 

Thanks,

James

I've not seen these specific problems since updating, no.

I can confirm going back to the older version ( 2.30.4246.181 - Dec 2015) Fixes the issue. So it only appears in the new version for me.

If anyone else is having the same issue, please report.
