Ability to align the column content
Add the ability to align the column content in tables, e.g. left- and right-aligned, centred, etc. in Power BI Desktop.
Hi everyone! We actually shipped this back in our November release just didn’t update you here:
Thanks for the votes!
I'd like to center align the column header and data, but put a background color behind just the column header and not the value. Seems I still cannot do this unless I am missing something.
We need to be able to align text, clients have different preferences.
This would be a great feature and improve the look of presentations.
Hi, what about card alignment? For center align i use multi-row cards instead of card (that let only left align option).Still i didn't find any solution for top align etc.
I need right align ability for text fields
It would be great if you can align your text as in Microsoft Word.
For eg. Align Center Left or align bottom center.
Because in a table the text is at the top it does not look neat.
After updating to Power BI Desktop for Report Server (March 2018) I noticed that this feature has been added. I was excited. But then I published to the Report Server and the text is not aligned there. For example, my table has columns that are centre-aligned in the Desktop app and it looks great, but after publishing to RS and opening the Report in a browser, the alignment is all messed up. Weirdly, they are all right-aligned now.
I think this is the most important feature that Power BI should prioritise. It is widely being used across other Microsoft products and one of the mandatory feature for doing formatting. It would really be helpful.

Please don't forget to implement text alignment in Cards.
This is an essential feature there

Is there is any other option to turnoff the row selection in table?
I can now align values within a matrix. However, I can't figure out how to center-align the column subtotals. Is this possible yet?
Would love the ability to center align data in columns in Power BI desktop.
It's included in the Nov. 2017 update

Alignment would be nice in the KPI visual as well
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.
