Hit Reply to tell us what you think about the new On-Object Interaction feature so we can continue to improve.
-Power BI team
On-Object interaction not working with 'Image' (from ribbon add image). Not able to get into the format. Need to turn of preview before I can make any changes.
Hi @ErwinS we do not currently support on object subselections for non-visuals yet (image, shape, button) but you should be able to use the format pane as before to format your images. Please let us know if you're running into issues using the format pane with the preview switch on.
That is the issue, when on object is active (preview) format pane is not showing on image.
1. When select image and in visual menu format nothing happens.
2. When select image and open format pane it shows page format option not image option.
3. Select image visual in selection pane, then format again page options are shown not image.
@ErwinS thanks for the follow up. We are having trouble repro'ing this on our end. Could you try creating a brand new report with just the image that's giving you this issue and see if you still can't see the format pane? If that repros can you create a ticket here and send us your pbix file so we can dig a bit deeper? Appreciate your help and feedback in trying out this preview!
I did do some additonal testing and it looks like the issue I mention above is happening when visuals are grouped. Below a similar situation but now with other type of visuals which are grouped, in screenshot you see visual selected but in format pane you see page details and not the selected visual.
I've received the March release and I've given it a try. One question I have so far is I was unable to see the drill through field well. How does one access that?
I have decided to give this another go. But still reverting back to the previous version.
I think the Options to Add to your Visual are the best part of this new feature. The Add to your Visual button at the top of each visual is handy and a nice enhancement.
I really cannot approve of the new hidden panes on the Pane Switcher. It is more cumbersome than the previous panes that were simple to collapse and expand with ease. They were always available and we didnt have to waste time thinking about where they are. This makes work so much more difficult by forcing users to go looking for and icon that represnts format/data/visuals panels and then we have to right click, then click again to 'open in a new pane' in order to get them to stay on screen. It is very inefficent way to work, it was really so much better when we had the collapse chevrons that allows us to free up space on the screen when we need it. I also feel that dragging and dropping a field from the data pane over to the appropriate axis was so easy. Now there are too many clicks to do the same thing. I think it is making a really simple process over complicated and many users will not like it.
I agree with you. The best thing would be to take advantage of some good ideas from this new feature to use in the pattern, such as minimizing the "Build Visual" in the "Visualizations" panel, being able to change the title directly in the visual, etc. But never discontinue the pattern for what we are testing.
Hello, this will be coming in the March release. The monthly blog will be out shortly, looking like tomorrow. Apologies for the confusion! Appreciate the enthusiasm to try the preview, looking forward to your feedback.
