Set Column Widths
Allow user to set column widths en masse. Ideally for each variable. For instance, I have sales and market share for each of ten years. If I am not good with the auto set width, rather than having to manually modify the width for each year, I should be able to either enter a width for the field OR manually change one and have the other years follow suit. Either would be helpful, rather than visually setting the widths and hoping I have them equal.
There are many ideas pointing to issues with how powerbi matrices and tables handle column widths. It is honestly inconceivable that these visuals cannot have widths set to a value for one, many, or all columns... There is not another spreadsheet (perhaps ever) that didn't allow that. (Visicalc, Lotus 123, Excel, Numbers, Google Sheets, Tableau, to name a few) It's such an obvious need that it doesn't get much play here and the width issues just continue to be buried and pushed aside by sexy features.
Sure would like it to be fixed. I have 5,000+ potential column headings depending upon filters (not every table is months of a year) and what can I do with that? Set each one on every matrix that uses that column source? I'm sure I'm not alone...we're the silent majority I guess.
