Do you might have an previous report created in 2016? Should you do, then that the visuals’ model was fairly totally different again then. Should you don’t wish to see all visuals of their previous model the place the headings overlap the opposite visuals and also you don’t know the best way to swap the visuals to their trendy model, then proceed studying. The next screenshot is from a really previous report I constructed for a Energy BI demo in Feb 2016! Time flies mate!
In case you are an previous Energy BI developer, you possibly can clearly keep in mind these days after we had many side-by-side slicers on the report canvas and generally it was onerous to click on a slicer as a result of hovering over the visuals prompts the visible frames and it’s simple to mistakenly click on a unique visible.
The opposite situation with the previous visible model is that the Visible Header choices of the Visualisations pane from the Format tab aren’t accessible for conventional visuals.
I see some builders don’t just like the previous visible model. It’s attention-grabbing that after we work on an previous report, even when we open the report within the newest model of Energy BI Desktop, the visuals’ model stays the identical and it doesn’t change if we add new visuals to a brand new web page. Some builders undergo loads of ache to get the visuals to work within the trendy model. I even know some builders copied all queries from the previous file’s Energy Question and pasted them to a brand new Energy BI file. Then they used Tabular Editor to repeat the tabular objects from the previous report back to the brand new one. And a few even began to construct the whole lot from scratch. In case you are a kind of builders, bear in mind that there’s a easy setting that may assist to rapidly swap all of the previous visuals to their new trendy model.
Observe these steps after opening an previous report within the newest model of Energy BI Desktop:
- Click on File menu
- Click on Choices and settings
- Click on Choices
- From the left pane scroll right down to the Present File choices
- Click on Report settings
- Tick the Use the modem visible header with up to date styling choices choice
- Click on OK
Voila! That’s it. Now you can benefit from the trendy visible header and styling.
Observe the column chart header now reveals the trendy header controls and styling. The visible header choices are additionally accessible now.
Take pleasure in!
