How can we improve Power BI?

Print option from Power BI Desktop

A print option for Power BI Desktop is required.

This will support design and development efforts by having a hard copy available for use in scenarios where online and real-time are not the best approach or even the most appropriate approach.

    The feature can only export the entire report every time? Can I choose which page to export?

  • David commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Many executives want a simple report that they can share easily without fuss. A Portable Document Report [.pdf], is hardly portable if it is restricted to only printing 'visible' pages. Other BI products do have this capability and can retain full color and formatting components. With such a feature-rich product as Microsoft Power BI, should it not be able to match this.

    Come on! What is the point of a set of screen shots? Generally we need to print individual visuals only but the key thing is that they need to print the entire table/matrix, including all of the data that isn't visible.

    every time I try to use export to pdf, my power BI Desktop crashes!!!
    I will never switch to Power BI from Tableau if there is no print function on Desktop!

    What is the point of just a screen capture ? The majority of requests were not for a screen capture... they were for a customisable PDF print function.

    I am also experiencing formatting issues with the exported PDF. I have a report that has many pages that are identical except for the category being filtered. When I export to PDF, I get pages that are formatting differently even though the page layout is the same across all pages.

    When this function will be available on Power BI Online, as users are going to use only Online, not the desktop.

    Thanks for adding this feature however several visuals do not export correctly, and the images end up cropped. Where may I submit this bug?

    This is great. One of my visuals do not look the same once I upload to PDF. I have 6 images showing in PowerBI desktop, but only 2 full images, plus 2 half images show up in the PDF file.

    PLEASE RE-OPEN THIS. We need the ability, in Power BI Desktop, or the Service, to print entire reports. Until the Export to Excel feature exports an entire grid (even rows that aren't visible) exactly as shown on the report, we really need to be able to print.

    Desperately need this option, was on verge of evaluating other products just because of this simple feature which is missing. But hope that the quality of the PDF output is good and not like the poor screenshots that are sent as subscription.
