Changes to Power BI Desktop in the November 2023 update
Part two of a four-part series of blogs
Although the main innovations in this update are in preview, two of them are turned on now by default: button slicers and reference labels for cards. We also can't resist the temptation to show the new DAX query view, even though it's still very much in preview only.
Microsoft have added a new button slicer to the visualisations ribbon:
The new button slicer is in preview, but it's turned on by default.
This allows you to create slicers like this, for example:
This button slicer has had formatting, images and hover effects applied.
Rather than try to squeeze this change into a single blog page, we've created this separate blog showing how you can create and format the new button slicer.

So, fasten your seatbelt, and get ready for the exciting journey ahead as our next stage unfolds and reveals even more Power BI updates, enhancements, and features! Coming next, the List and dropdown slicer!"
