Custom Visuals - Not Saving





I added a few custom visualizations to my Visualization Pane and when I close out of the PBID and re-open all the custom visualizations I loaded are gone. I am left with the standard ones. Is there a way to fix this?

This issue is still persisting


A custom visual template is added to a specific report when imported. If you'd like to use the visual template in another report, you need to import it into that report as well.

@willTangThank you for your fast answer.
I use a specific visual for 90% of my reports, so this menas I have to import that visual 20 - 30 times per day?

@fmantovAs far as I know, only be the case. You can sumbit your feeckback on Power BI Ideas and vote it up.

@willTang someone had already open this issue here;




thank you

Or at least you can provide option to select multiple visuals import at a time. If I have 20 custom visuals I have to import each visual at a time and it means 20 times import will actually solve my problem

Hi @hellovaras,  Did you update the PBID with the latest version release May 2016. If not then please do it and see if you still have the problem.


In older versions of PBID, When you Re-open the pbix file in PBID, a security alert pops up on top where you have to click on enable visuals.

Thanks for the reply.


I did the update for May and the issue persists. Any other suggestions? Thanks for your help
