Slicer in Power BI Desktop



I have installed February 2022 Power BI Desktop and I try to use a slicer. Month & Year slicer below does not work when I unselect Select all, line chart still displays including months and years on X-axis. Are there any ways to make it work? Thanks!

Hi @Windynite ,


You want the visual to be blank when the slicer is not selected, right?

Please set a new measure.

Measure = CALCULATE ( IF ( ISFILTERED ( 'Table'[Month] ), 1, 0 ), ALLSELECTED ( 'Table' ) )


Add this measure to visual level filters, and set its value to 1.




Best Regards,

Stephen Tao

Hi @v-stephen-msft : There's nothing displaying on the visual when choosing Select all. 

I hope that Power BI developers will fix this issue soon.

@Windynite not sure what your expectation is? When nothing is selected, it means all the options are selected and it is how slicers work?

@parry2k :Is it Okay if you go to a restaurant without ordering any but a waiter brings many food to you with a receipt over there?
