Hi @aka

What I think has happened possibly is did you import a Theme into your Power BI desktop file? 

I wonder if that is affecting it?


When I did it on my data it is working perfectly well as you can see below.


Also what Browser are you using and is it the latest version?

Also is this happening to other users in your organization?

Hi @aka


I would suggest as @v-sihou-msft did to remove the theme or set it to default to see if that will resolve the issue. It does appear that the font color is a little light.

I tried changing my report to default theme and then maually adding my theme colors to the tiles in the reports and republished it on the services, it did solve the problem.


does this conclude that my theme is corrupted, and i will always have to mannually change the color to the theme?


Thanks a lot for your help guys!!


Hi @aka


You theme is not corrupted but rather that the theme colours for the table are light in colour which makes it difficult to see.


Have a look at your theme and see what the colors are set to for:

Possibly remove this line and it should default to the standard Table Accent Colours.

Are you using a custom theme? It looks like your theme colors have a really light gray for the first item.

@KHorsemanyes am using custom theme but i have modified my report online to black color same report  am able to see the data on desktop version.



I've seen similar issues due to custom theme. The issue persists untion the JSON file is modified by changing "background" into "#FFFFFF". But I still suggest you pin your dashboard without keeping the theme. 



@v-sihou-msft how did you solve the issue, did you remove the theme ?
