Slicer Header Keeps Showing

My slicer header keeps on showing


This is my Report in Desktop



and when I publish the report, it shows like this.



even if the format pane is set to off

I have the latest PowerBI Desktop installed.


Do you have any idea how to handle this?

Or am I the only one encountering this?


Thank you

Hi everyone,

Hi @mussaenda ,


Based on my test in the latest version 2.81.5831.821 of Power BI Desktop, turned off the Slicer header of slicer visuals,  saved the pbix file and then publish to Power BI Service, the slicer header didn’t appear in Power BI Service. You may check if you have turned off the option "Slicer header" before save file and publish,  and click "Refresh" button in Power BI Service.


Best Regards,

Hi @v-xicai ,


I am also using the same version as yours.


I encountered this poblem with my old reports.

I just republished them and when I check the service, Headers are showing.

I didn't amend anything on visuals before. And they are running okay.

But now, even if you change it in service, it is not responding.


Have you also tested the horizontal slicer and hide the header in service?

The slicer header setting is ignored in PBI Service, if the slicer orientation is set to "Horizontal". The screenshot below shows the PBI service view in the top part and the same in PBI Desktop at the bottom. I have disabled the slicer header in both visuals.

I still believe this is a bug.


Not applicable

We are seeing the exact same issue too.  Definitely a bug. Seems to have started last week. 

I have the same exact issue...

@mussaenda , before the switch of Title, remove the title name , switch it off. Clear cache republish and check

Actually this is not a title but a header of slicer.

But I followed your advice but it did not remove the header.

Do you have anyy other option?


On the service, I think slice header is not working

I've just noticed the same behaviour in my report: The slicer header is set to off in PBI Desktop, but after the publish to PBI Service the slicer header is shown. I'm using PBI Desktop 2.81.5831.821 64-bit. I believe this post should be moved to the "Service" section, as it looks like a bug in PBI Service to me.

I think the problem comes when we don't want to display the Slicer Header on the canvas. This is happening in one of my dashbaords as well and "Sad for the poor implementation" I'm using slicer as button action - earlier it was looking cool with only Slicer item appearing on the published dashboard - now suddenly the title has started appearing and looks really bad and lame.


I think MS needs to give a solution real fast.





ah yes, you are right. It should be there.

Thank you for suggesting.


hope this resolves soon because it affects the layout of the reports

Hello @FrankPreusker , do you manage to solve this issue? have the same problem and can't figure it out what is going one with the slicer header.


Thanks in advance.
