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!

        I read the new release features descriptions and tried the new matrix. but is it possible to truncate the column headers somehow??

        word wrap in values is great. would it be too greedy to ask for the wrap to honor hard returns from the data source? or a way to achieve it

        Fantastic - and just in time for a presentation to my client! The table works really smoothly. Awesome.

        I have installed May Update 2017 as given below

        release Version: 2.46.4732.461 64-bit (May, 2017)

        But still not showing the New Visual for the Table to do wrap text.

        Hi, word wrap for table is in complete, when that text is too big , it is truncating the text. Will post a screen shot shortly.

        Would be nice to have a setting that the resizing stayed in place after slicing from another visual

        Slicers reset the text wrap. This is the case in desktop, haven't tried on web.

        Also, rather than wrapping each column individually in the Matrix Preview visual (which is a great new visual!), can it be made to wrap all columns with the same header (so the same values columns) to be the same width? At the moment I have to do each one individually, then the slicers reset them anyway.

        Will this idea's implementation also include word wrap in bar charts, line charts, etc.? I am very glad this functionality is becoming available for tables, matrices, and cards, but
        I also really need it for bar charts and other visuals. Categorical labels frequently get cut off in these charts. There is often not a good way for me to shorten these labels in my context, and drilling further into a hierarchy compounds the problem.

        Why, after 4 years on the ideas list and with over a thousand votes has this not yet been added? The values in the grid need to wrap so you can display any commentary in datasets! Come on now, get this sorted please

        Our reports don't look great with text truncated because of field sizing, in order to get all relevant fields into this report. Word wrapping would be a blessing for this problem!

        This is very much needed feature, without this feature it is no use of having Power BI reports. Can we have an ETA for this feature to be implement for Tables?

        This is great. A word wrap on Card would be awesome. Not yet see it :), but looking forward to it !

        Please, it is essential that Power BI enables wrapping text in a table/matrix, as we have "free text" fields and the scroll turns too long and unworkable.
