Close or Move Text Box / Smart Narrative Editor

Hello,

Previously, when editing our reports in the online mode (specifically changing text within text boxes), we were able to do this without any issues. However, over the last couple of days, we have noticed there is a new text editor appearing when editing in online mode. This text editor is directly covering our text box so we cannot see what is in it while typing. We have tried moving it around and tried looking for an option to shut it off but have not found anything. Additionally, we have tried this in both Edge and Chrome. 

 

Here is a screenshot:

We have a lot of text before the "-Complaint" which we are not able to see.

 

Does anyone know how we can either move this editor, disable it, or close it? It seems to be some new functionality which was added over the last few days.

 

Thank you!

Hi @jjoyce0425 ,

 

I am sad to report that this is also the case in Desktop.  It is part of the last update and I hope it changes soon because I also do not know how to get this out of the way.  Please create an issue (https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/idb-p/Issues) and let us know and I will happily vote for it as this is painful at the moment.

 

I would appreciate Kudos if my response was helpful. I would also appreciate it if you would Mark this As a Solution if it solved the problem. Thanks!

I am having a similar issue when I use the text box, the smart narrative options cover my visual so I cannot look and reference my visual when writing. This makes writing my text very difficulat as I am frequently clicking in and out of the text box to reference values in my visual. We need to be able to move this box!
