        how is this not a feature... its driving my mangement team nuts, and its hard to tell them their BI program doesnt allow for the alignment of text.

      • Alessandro commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Custom horizontal and vertical alignment for the whole table or indipendently by column.

        This would be a very nice value add, so I can make my reports looks that much more professional.

        Ability to align columns, both in groups and independently, would be extremely useful. Thanks

        The problem is also compounded by the fact that Power BI seems to strip off trailing spaces in the matrix - so I can't use trailing spaces as a workaround for the missing left alignment.

        Waiting for this change. This alignment option should be available in Tables as well as Matrix. We should able to align every column separately.

        It would be great to have left and centre alignment, rather than just right alignment. Right works fine for most numerics but can make the data look messy for some textual categorical information. thanks!

        Dear Bill, we thank you kindly for this wonderful piece of software. You now have a whole party of BI developers who love it and would really, really appreciate it if you could ever so kindly add alignment options to some of the visuals.

        Another vote for this feature is here! I have many visuals that would need this feature. Hoping to see it soon.

        This is a basic necessity...please add! It's a shame to do all the work and have it look sloppy on the dashboard.

        When turning off summarizing the (percentage) columns suddenly align to the left.
