How can we improve Power BI?

December "Hidden" icon for visuals in selection toolbar

The new icons for "Hidden" and "Viewable" visuals from the December update on the selection toolbar is not easy to use. It's really hard to quickly see what is hidden and what isn't. When I have 50+ visuals in the selection toolbar tied to multiple bookmarks then new icons become a hindrance.

Please return to the old icon style as this change has been a major step backward in usability.

    I third this! Working with bookmarks is much more difficult as it is very easy to have something incorrectly shown or hidden when you create a bookmark. (You always have to recreate a bookmark as update bookmark has never worked). Also becomes even harder with high resolution screens.

    I second this so much! I absolutely hate the new hidden icon. The classic open/shut eye icon system that Power BI had before was great and has worked well in many other applications/games. This new hidden icon that shows an open eye with a little tiny nearly unnoticeable blip at the bottom right is stupid.

    On this note, you should also change the hidden tabs back to being greyed out instead of having this stupid icon.
