How can we improve Power BI?

Text wrap in tables, cards, etc.! -- in dashboards and reports.

I created an Excel workbook with an XML feed from A.W.rd.A.Day: http://wordsmith.org/awad/rss1.xml. I created a table in PV; text in the description of the word is cut off. I upload to PBI and create a tile. Text in the tile is also cut off. Not cool!

        please, deploy wrapping text within cells ASAP! really needed for keeping Power BI under my tooling!

        surprised and disappointed this isn't available. Currently in evaluation stage of PowerBI, this may be enough to have to choose a competitor as it is such basic functionality that most of the reporting I need to do can't be done without this feature.

        Yes, word wrap in columns, word wrap in within the tables, cards and matrices themselves (muli-row) is critical. Look forward to having that basic capability ASAP. Thank you.

        Bring it on! Need this wrapping within the tables itself other wise multi line text fields are not very nice to report on.

        and word wrap in the detail rows too please, anywhere in the table that has text

        Any updates on the below, critical needs and gaps? When will the next release by? Thank you.

        thanks for the row header wrap feature. Now, as others have suggested, please extend this switch to column headers also.

      • JohnJohn commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I like that this is being implemented! At the moment the row header wrap does not seem to work if it a single row with now sub categories. Is it possible to make the row header wrap for a single line?

        Please add column header wrapping for a matrix similar to the table header function. (Though full wrapping functionality is needed soon as well.) This really impacts the way we are able (or unable) to name variables, and how much space we have to use for a table or matrix on a page.

        Thanks! Looking forward to seeing the wrap happen within the table cells themselves.

        The text wrapping is a great addition...but for me, when it comes to header and column layout esthetics, the left justification of headers is just awful! If you have a numeric table field that justifies to the right and a larger header that justifies to the left, the column looks terrible. At the very least headers should default to center justification. Any plan to make this change down the road?

        OK good Amanda. Pretty basic function one would think for Microsoft for many years

        MY GOD.... wasn't wrapping text in a cell available in Lotus 123 in the 80s? Come on MS, this is a no brainer and the type of thing that should have launched in the first beta.

        There's a word wrap option for Card titles but it doesn't work yet
