Changes for the May 2022 Power BI Desktop update
Part four of a five-part series of blogs

Small improvements this month, but welcome ones - particularly the ability to zoom in and out, and to select data points in (some) charts using a selection rectangle.

  1. Changes for the May 2022 Power BI Desktop update
  2. You can now zoom in and out in Power BI Desktop!
  3. Lassoing data points using a rectangle for a chart
  4. Automatically expanding all formatting categories (this blog)
  5. ArcGIS has improved - apparently

We've been creating our idiosyncratic monthly blogs on Power BI updates since November 2016, and also deliver online and classroom Power BI courses.

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.

Expand categories

You can get to this option by choosing File -> Options and settings and then Options, then clicking on the Report settings tab as shown.

Here's the difference this makes:

Normal view With the option enabled

Personally I'm with Microsoft: I like the way the new view appears uncluttered, and don't mind having to expand categories to view their contents!
