Issue - Field search issue when writing DAX code

Hi,

 

Since the January version (IIRC) of Power BI Desktop for Report Server, looking for fields when writing DAX codes became a nightmare for me.

 

Since then it is standard operation that field nameparts are not found when I start typing. So I have to go through a table's all columns one by one in the list to reference the field I'm looking for. (or I could type the table name a column name manually)

The real pain starts when the table I'm referencing is so long that I cannot see the full column name:

If I type ClientAct (this is how the column name continues), the above columns do not appear in the column list.

Is it a known issue? Is is a bug or a feature? Is is possible to widen the UI element where the columns and measures appear when writing a DAX code?

Currently it is by design in Power BI Desktop as far as I know.
