Well if didn't mind a bit of work, make your column title font color white. Capture a pic in Excel, create an image, and voila!Smiley Wink

not a bad idea at all.

you could take it to the next level and tag each column with the image making it dynamic too. I did something similar with flags on a piece of work, you could apply the same logic....

There are nice tricks and workaround, but Microsoft must work on this badly missing feature ASAP..

I am looking for another solution, but in the mean time... you can use a text box as a title as well and rotate the text veritically

Does someone know if due to updates of PowerBi, making headers vertical is possible now?

can't be done I'm afraid.

 

I'm sure there's a request for it to be added to the pipeline, but nothing at the minute.

Seriously, is it really impossible to rotate headers into a vertical position? This seems unbelievable.

That is NOT a good solution.  I have dynamic column headers that may disapear when the user changes filters.  Static column headers is not a perfect solution. I cannot understand why Microsoft had this option in 1990 in Excel but refuses to add this urgent problem for the last 7 years of Power BI... ARGH!!!
