M Intellisense showing in dax formula bar [BUG]



Good morning,


The formula bar to create a table, a column or a measure in powerbi (not in powerquery) it's showing the M intelligense style and not the usual one. This is very annoying because I don't get the help message with the parameters when I type a formula. Does anyone know how can I solve this?

I have uninstalled and installed again powerbi a couple times.


Thank you.

Hi @mariamartinez ,

After Oct 2021 version of Power BI Desktop, DAX formula bar format has been updated. If you want to use previous format, you can download the previous version of Power BI Desktop(Sept 2021 or earlier).


In addition, you can create a new idea here to help us improve Power BI.

It is a place for customers provide feedback about Microsoft Office products . What’s more, if a feedback is high voted there by other customers, it will be promising that Microsoft Product Team will take it into consideration when designing the next version in the future.
