When placing a visual on the screen, there is no way to get it to fill the entire space of the container that it is in, there is always white space around it. Being able to either fill that white space, or enter a negative X/Y value to align it to the top of the report page would be a useful. Examples of this would be placement of a logo on the report by getting it closer to the top/edge of a report page.

Just stunned that this does not have more votes and MS has not done anything to address it in the first place.

Does Microsoft respond to these comments? As another person has already said this would “appear” to be a simple fix but here for 3 years now.

When embedding the reports this is also an issue, so much whitespace and margins everywhere. Needs to stop!

May have been just coincedence but i think ive managed a work around. When viewing your dashboard, if you click on the tile you wish to see it will expand to a full view and not leave any white spaces around it. Whilst it is in this view, pin to live page. Go back to your dashboard, delete the original tile that was showing lots of white space and squashing your visual, then move the new visualed tile to where you want and it won't have the hideous white borders. It worked for me.

Wow, I can't believe this has been an "idea" for so long and yet there has not been a solution yet. How disappointing! I am getting so frustrated with these cluster bar charts. To have them wide enough to read the data I have to take up the whole page, but I need multiple reports on one page!?!

Given Power BI is a visualisation tool, this is basic functionality that should exist. Please provide this capability.

This is issue is maddening to me! There is too much white space in so many visuals and we need to be able to better control this. An especially bad offender in this regard are the cards - heaven forbid your category label need to wrap onto a second line because then it necessitates even more white space be taken up at the top (to equal the space below the data label). Yet in other cases like for y axis titles there actually isn't enough white space between the y axis title and the category labels. Amount of white space is definitely something that needs to be controllable by users

This thread is nearing three years old. Power BI's visuals are the first impression of the program, this is an unacceptable time to wait for such a simple fix.

There is way too much wasted blank space, within visuals and at the bottom of the Windows 10 Mobile App when used on a Tablet or Desktop computer (non issue for mobile phone view).

Agree to JayZheng there is plenty of space wasted when using clustered bar chart.
