    I echo this request. It would be great to have a direct OneDrive for Business data source connection in Power BI Desktop. As I understand it, using the File data connector to point for a local file stored in OneDrive doesn't offer the sync/refresh benefits advertised for source files in OneDrive. The only way to do it in Desktop seems to be a roundabout way of getting the URL for a OneDrive for Business file from the web app, modifying it, and then using that with the Web data connector in Power BI Desktop.

    OneDrive for Business is an available data source in the Power BI Service online, and it would be awesome (and useful) to have it in Power BI Desktop as well so that we wouldn't necessarily need to use a data gateway.

    Unless I misunderstand the request, I think this is addressed by the Orientation formatting option: Vertical or Horizontal. Per https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-service-tutorial-slicers/#format-the-slicer.

    Perhaps this question is about changing the text direction like the setting in Word and other Office applications, though. https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Set-text-direction-and-position-in-a-text-box-or-shape-380535c8-f5db-420c-bf44-05438ef7e7b9

    I'm having this same issue. I have a lot of information in my tooltips. The tooltip box/container seems to have a max height that is too small to contain all of the data, so some of it gets cut off.

    From the comments and scenarios everyone’s describing, the problem is really that you need a way to allow end-users to change which measure is displayed in a visual on the fly.

    As a few folks have mentioned, the FORMAT function might help in the interim, as long as you’re showing the results in text rather than a chart. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dax/format-function-dax has details on how to use that.

    The expression-based formatting feature that we’ve started work on may help to a certain extent, but that’s really designed to change a visual’s properties rather than the data type or format. We’ll look into extending that work to support this scenario as well.

    We’re moving this to Backlog status – our core plan is to build ways that end-users can change the dimensions or measures that are visible in a chart on the fly. They’ll be able to explore much more freely rather than…

    The trend line feature that was recently added is great and much appreciated, but it would really create so much more value to have more advanced features like those mentioned above.

    Could we also have the option of displaying the R2 or other correlation value? And the fit line equation. Even if the equation couldn't be displayed on the report, it would be nice to be able to see what it is (and copy the text for use elsewhere)

    I love the new feature to show trend lines on charts. Thanks!

    The only thing it's missing is the option of displaying the R2 value and/or or the fit line equation. Even if the equation couldn't be displayed on the report, it would be nice to be able to see what it is.

    This would be extremely helpful. Any basic measure of correlation strength would be so helpful.

    I'd like to be able to define how rows are sorted. From what I can tell it's AtoZ or ZtoA, but I need to be able to define the sort order.

    For example, if I'm using a matrix and have text row values, the logical order in which they should be displayed doesn't necessarily match alphabetic order.
