Give users the ability to set a theme (either an out-of-the-box or custom theme) as their default for all reports created in Power BI Desktop.

*** Original idea text below:

A dedicated place to set defaults for all Power Bi visuals. If I always want my titles to be 15pt font, and my general font to be 12 pt, I currently have to set on each visual. Attachments: MergeStatus.txt (0.17KB) MergeStatus.txt (0.21KB) MergeStatus.txt (0.18KB)

This and ideally the ability to change all fonts on a report at once. Or the ability to do all of each of the Format sections.

Help my productivity please :-)

Every Microsoft productivity application allows for the setting of default formats and/or the mass change across the document of format settings. I do not understand why this limitation exists in PowerBI Desktop.

This would be a great feature.
We currently have our own theme but changing the theme to ours every time manually is a painful process.

Hope Microsoft will implement this feature.

It would be great if you increase Default font size. So we dont need to change individual visualizations

Yes, this would help ensure that all Power BI reports are brand compliant without needing to do a lager amount of editing which can be time consuming

I tried to vote on this, but it wouldn't let me. I'd like to be able to load a custom json file theme by default at launch

I have a JSON file with a theme that I apply to most of my reports. Right now I have to import it anew every time I launch Power BI or create a new file. It would be great if it was possible to direct Power BI Desktop to load that custom file by default at at launch

Hi RCC, that is a very tedious method. It also makes managing updates to the JSON difficult. We are a large organization and need an easy way to distribute theming.

You can create custom JSON's and distribute them with the licenses for the Pro users though.
