Apply field formatting to row headers
In a matrix visual, I have multiple measures, and I've turned on "Show on rows," so that each measure appears in a row rather than in a column.
Now, when I apply field formatting with "Apply to header" = 'On', the field formatting does not get applied to the row header. I expected it would.
Please fix this so that field formatting can be applied to row headers, the same as column headers. Thanks!
The Power BI Matrix has some nice features but us SEVERELY limited on formatting control of rows, columns, etc. Conditional formatting can only be applied to values which is fine for a "standard" type of report, but if you are trying to do something custom with text, it is very limited. Numerous other tools such as Eclipse and BIRT and Tableau can do this easily. I would need to change both the font, font size, and font color for different row headers based on a text value. I could convert the text value into a number with some DAX, but the engine doesn't even provide a conditional formatting allowance for the row headers. This is very disappointing...
Conditional Formatting on Row headers would be a great addition for users trying to create a financial PandL. Being able to highlight certain row headers to stand out from others would be beneficial.
When you are looking at periodic review you want 40 items across 13 periods. At the moment I can only do 48 on the top and 13 rows it looks naff.
Very much need feature, Please provide as soon as possible.

Wow, this one has been an issue for quite a while. This is a pretty elementary need to get reports looking acceptable. Any progress?
Same here, very frustrating. Seems like a bug as according to the settings that are available it should be there. But doesn't work anymore when 'Show on rows' is activated.
Crucial for layout in most of my reports.
This needs to be done. So annoying when I have Values as Rows, and the field formatting won't apply to the row Header like it does if I leave the values as columns. C'mon MSFT, get it fixed!
In a matrix we need to be able to customize the formatting of the row headers so that level 3 is smaller than level 2 and Level 1 being the largest. Very important for nice formatting of hierarchies.
I need it!
This needs to be added as a functionality. To give option for example of Pass (Green), Fail (Red) etc.
Table and Matrix.
also fraustrated by that.
spent a whole bunch of time trying to make it work, but it dosent.
sometimes it worked for some rows and not for others, and most time worked for none.
Seems random, and i could not find any documentation that suggests how does this behave.
Yep same here. We have result and target measures in the rows. We'd like to make the target rows be bold (or another font/colour).
