You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our blogs. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
Power BI Desktop - February Update
The changes included in this update are:
|Matrix row header word wrap||This underwhelming new feature allows you to wrap text in row headers in matrices.|
|Axis font size||You can now change the font size in X and Y axis titles.|
|Minimum category widths||You can now make sure your categories are readable in charts by giving them minimum widths.|
|Thicker lines in charts||You can change the stroke width of line charts, and also control what the joins between lines look like.|
|New quick calc options||You can now show figures in a table or matrix as a percentage of the column or row totals.|
As always, this blog covers the features which we think people we've trained will find useful. For a comprehensive list dotting every i and crossing every t, go to the Microsoft Power BI update page.
