        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.

        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.

        Thank you

        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.

        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?

        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.
