        Please, please give us the formatting capability to align column data. My OCD is trolling me into oblivion without it

        I hope this is implemented such that "any" text or number shown can be formatted in basic ways i.e. change font, size, color, bold, underline, italics, background, alignment, conditional formatting etc like excel. That would address pretty much all needs one would have for text display.

        Please let this change affect more than just tables. This feature would be great in Cards, and Multi-Row Cards.

        Please just add something similar to the WORD / EXCEL / PPT toolbar formatting options to PowerBI. In particular the FONT and ALIGNMENT options. The current PowerBI formatting mechanism is extremely awkward and time consuming. It's also lacking some of the most basic needs.

        Font, Font Size, Bolding, Underline, Font and Background Colors, Cell Alignment, etc...

        Need this feature as this is one of the basic feature any tool needs.
