Ability to wrap text in visual titles

When the title of a visual is too long relative to the visual size the title is cut off and replaced by 3 dots. This results in having to hover over the title or entering focus mode to see the full title.

I think the titles should have the option to wrap text, similar to the functionality that the card visual has.

        Desperately needed. I know someone made a comment about "if we make the title multi line where does it end, 2 lines, 3, 20..."

        To which I say - don't be stupid, or so dramatic. No one wants 20 line titles

        I think 99% of us would be satisfied with just a 2nd line. For those extra small card visualizations that can't currently display a 3 word title

        It's extremely frustrating to have to waste space making the card extra wide just to display the title correctly

        This is an helpful idea.
        Please add "the ability to wrap text in Legend text"
        These funtions will make a huge difference. Thanks Power BI Team for your support!

        Power BI provide the ability to increase and change font on Titles but does not allow to wrap.

        It really is the simple things that make a huge difference in usability. I have two cards that I cannot adequate explain what the data means because I don't have enough horizontal real estate, I have plenty of vertical space.

        Please consider this as a feature. There are many times when a multi line header would have great benefits

        Please implement. I was trying to add a multi line title to a clustered column chart

        Can we get this implemented, if you make a text box above to have word wrap it then gets blocked by the charts header when clicked.

        So many nuances to this program.

        Like everyone else in this thread, I believe it would be very beneficial to have titles have the ability to wrap. Legends also need the ability to wrap and ensure the entire message is pushed across on the dashie.

        Completely agreed.. I have this same issue and would love the feature to have the ability to wrap text!

        I am very grateful that word rap was added to table headings but I believe we need in KPI, Card and Multi-card visuals as well.

        I believe most of us have a similar idea of the size of a KPI or card, and it is often not big enough to fit a reasonable title.
        Off course one can extend the width of the KPI, but that is neither good as a best practise visualisation nor for the available real estate on the page.
