    I'm hoping this Docs idea (started by one of the key "M" developers) could be the opportunity to resolve this issue - please vote and comment: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/16204225-move-the-formula-language-m-documentation-to-d

    Docs certainly looks/works better than MSDN - you get my vote. But I noticed that's another variation on the name for this thing ... the Docs move is probably your last chance to sort out the name ... PQL? https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/11680242-provide-an-official-short-name-for-power-query-for

    It seems ironic that there is so much emphasis on OneDrive in Power BI, yet you cant use Power BI Desktop to open a file in OneDrive ...

    Yes its crazy that 1 year after GA and we still don't have undo or even Discard in the Query Editor. Instead I have to constantly drop in and out of that window and Save the whole file after each query change, to have a rollback point.

    I tend to edit queries in a parallel Excel workbook to avoid this, then copy and paste their scripts across - but that is also painful.

    There's more discussion of this issue here, including examples of public websites with .xls files:

    Using some of the visuals is quite complex, yet they are basically undocumented besides a paragraph on the Custom Visuals page. Advanced Viz is the key area of weakness for PBI vs other mature solutions eg Tableau. Please put more effort into documenting, supporting and improving Custom Visuals.

    We are investing to constantly improve the custom visuals and the platform. performance, reliability, feature-set, etc.
    Most visuals are maintained by the community, and we encourage them to improve. recently the custom visuals gallery was migrated to the Office store, where reviews and ratings are available, so I encourage you to go and review visuals and ask for features directly from the developers.
    You can also use the dedicated community site to suggest ideas: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Custom-Visuals-Ideas/idb-p/CustomVisualsIdeas

    This should be moved to the Custom Visuals category.

    I'm not sure why this has been categorized under Custom Visuals - I think it refers to the built-in table object?

    Mike Honey commented  · 

    Actually AFAIK Excel doesn't do this - it would automatically widen such a table column to the full width of the column heading. In Excel you can manually set the width and manually set the column headings to wrap. This may be "too hard" and not worth working on - I imagine it would take a lot of coding to judge when to wrap and how wide to make the column. Perhaps manual column width and wrapping controls are a more realistic ask?
