Hi, thanks for the responses but the simple fact is that no matter the size of the element nor the canvas it does not work in the Service but do work in the Desktop. (Tested the proposed techniques without any affect of final result)


More over, it did work in service last month and without any notice the behavior changed and affected the UX badly.

I have also just noticed this issue start occurring in the last day or so. You can see from my screenshot sometimes wrap works sometimes it doesn't. I don't want to resize the one affected button because then I would have to resize them all to match and I have many pages with this group of buttons. Some pages don't have enough real estate to resize them all so also not an option.

Hi. Let's talk about two things. First, word wrap doesn't mean that will be applied at any size. It means it will try breaking line when the horizontal size can't fit and it HAS vertical size to continue. But if it doesn't have vertical space, it will just show like "word wra..."

Second, I know it sounds weird but after many years I can assume that the size of the canvas at Power Bi Desktop and Power Bi Service is a little bit different. When you are working with the last pixel for showing a word or a number, you can see that it won't work at service. You need more space. You can test this editing the report from service and increasing the size of the box a little bit.

I hope this helps

I'm seeing the same issue on one of my reports that's worked for months...and now the buttons won't always word-wrap in the service.  Everything looks perfect in the desktop (latest version).  This is a significant design issue if this doesn't get resolved quickly.  Please help, Microsoft!
