How can we improve Power BI?

Greater control over the scale and division of axes, especially values less than 1.

Greater control over the scale and division of axes. The MAJORITY of our data is frequency related where we have to display values in scientific notation from the range of 10-9 up to 10-2. Display of numbers greater than 1 creates automatic minor division on the y axis; but if below value of 1, the minor lines on the y axis do not display and there is no control over this. Same applied for x axis. Similar comments have been posted over greater control of the axes values and arrangement, but I have not seen one about small number values.

        It would also be helpful to have an option to force the right axis to always display on line and column charts. Especially when dealing with percents on right axis. When the upper value on the left axis is small or in the range close to the percents, the right axis disappears. It needs to stay there.

        Visualisation of data in this range is important to risk. Clear scale and division are critical to this visualisation.

        I repeatedly encounter this problem. It is particularly important since PowerBI sometimes switches from log to linear axes when a log axis is requested. It is not always apparent that this has happened if there are no values or grids on the axes.

        Graphing of numbers smaller than 1 are important in our branch of engineering. This looks like it should be relatively easy to fix.
