"Custom label" field on "Clustered Bar chart" grayed-out on "October 2023" version

Hi Power BI community.

 

On Power BI dekstop, pre "Version: 2.122.746.0 64-bit (October 2023)", Ive created a "Clustered Bar chart" visual with a measure on the "X-axis" to define the bar length and a different (text) measure on the "custom label" field to display a different label for each bar.

 

After the update, the text measure is still working, but the "custom label" field is grayed-out. Im not able to remove or change the measure from the field.

 

Ive also tried creating a new "Clustered Bar chart" from scratch, but the "custom label" field is still grayed-out. The "custom label" toggle button however is working. I can turn it on or off, but not change the measure.

 

Am I doing someting wrong or does it relate to the version update?

 

Any help?

You can not do anything. If you want your custom Lable to be working please install 2 month previous version.

I hope I answered your question.Please give kudos and accept it as a solution!

Hi Uzi,

 

Thanx for your input. I suspect the same.

 

I think I'll roll back to a previous version.

Hi @Gerhardtc_95 
For prev version it seems completly fine.
