How can we improve Power BI?

Selection pane & overlay when designing mobile

Allow visuals to overlay in the mobile designer and have a separate selection pane for the mobile view. Our report users leverage the mobile view heavily and having this additional capability would go a long way in improving the mobile look/feel
(as would not being forced to snap-to-grid in mobile view).

Right now for more complex interactions as well as background images on mobile, we're forcing the designer to overlay visuals by doing the following:
1. In the mobile view, pin an image with the desired background
2. In the desktop view, hide the image in the selection pane
3. In the mobile view, pin more visuals where the image used to be
4. In the desktop view, un-hide the image in the selection pane
5. In the mobile view, you should now see visuals overlaid on the image effectively creating the background

One large asterisk with this approach, is that the mobile designer ignores the selection pane ordering and instead relies on the order the object was created in. Hence the need for a mobile specific solution :)
