Hi team,


In new release verson of Power BI desltop Version: 2.51.4885.543 64-bit (October 2017). There is no Line style (a Shape feature) of Line chart which is added in Aug 2017 release. Could you please kindly check it?

Do you mean the "Marker shape" setting? You need to turn on "Show marker" first, then you should be able to find it as following screenshot.

No, he meant "Line style" option which was added two months ago and is now gone with the October patch. 

I'm in a middle of a BI project were we utilize this particular feature, but I can't change this option anymore with the new patch. I'd like to have it back ASAP.


From August feature summary. Notice the Line style option right below Join type.

Just updated from a version before when this was a feature to October, annoying that I've skipped the functionality completely, please restore this...

Yes, Please restore this option for line style configuration.

I thought I was the only one having this issue. So it seems a bug. The visual with applied line styles prior to October update still have the styles though but the option to add or edit it is missing.line style option missing.png

I reported the issue in the proper section and hopefully this will be acknowledged and fixed soon.

Hi All,


This will be fixed for Nov 2017 version of PBI Desktop.

The Web is unaffected - workaround is to Edit report online to access this feature. Saved reports will still render as expected.
