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 is a basic one...

It's astounding that you can't set a workbook default font.

I don't want to have to import the theme in every report that I already created and published!

indeed. Ideal way as I see it, to have preferences in file menu and change default values of any setting, format etc...

Yes indeed. Save a lot of time and effort

can this not be made to import with the theme at least please, changing the font on every visual is very time consuming

This would be very handy especially being able to set a default theme in the service

'I would love to see the option to influence the default settings of PowerBI desktop for within companies. A solution to implement and enforce a standard "look and feel" by changing the start-up PBIX content would be perfect.

Something like how you can influence the "normal.dot" in Word to reflect standards of Word documents for an entire company. For PowerBI this should cover multiple functionalities that are more or less available or already requested in other ideas. Thing like:

- Standardizing the theme that gets loaded by default
- Always loading certain custom visuals
- Enforcing some layout elements like a company logo and/or footer with date, creator data and other meta tags.
