Tooltip: keep legend name

Hi all,

 

I am creating a powerBI for production context, and have one problem. I have nice visuals and also built tooltips that are needed to provide the necessary information in a good way. However, there is one problem. when I hover over my visual, the tooltip pops up but I cannot see the name of the item that I am hovering on! Is there a way to display this in the pop-up?

In my example I have a stacked column chart with the product category added as legend. In the pop-up, I show how this category is split in sub-categories using a pie chart. However I cannot see on which category I am looking because the pop-up opens above it....

 

Thanks for any hints!

Hi, create a measure min(ProductCategory)
add it as a card to your tooltip to be displayed on top lets say.  dont forget to place your Product Level Category to the tolltips filed on the tooltip page.

You can adjust the position of the pop-up window to appear on the side of the legend instead of above it.
In the Legend settings of the stacked column chart, click on the "Position" dropdown and select "Right".
This will help you move the legend to the right-hand side of the chart. I am assuming that when you hover over a legend item,
the pop-up window should appear to the right of the legend instead of above it.
Another workaround, you can try resizing the pop-up window to make it smaller and less obstructive by using the Customize Tooltip dialog box, adjust the size and position of the pop-up window by dragging the edges or corners of the "Tooltip Area".
