This seems to be an issue in the past but was supposed to have been rectified. Any ideas?

Hi @samdthompson,

As I tested, I can export the report to Powerpoint successfully. Please try the following three solutions and check if it works fine.

1. Create a new report in Power BI desktop using the sample data and publish it to Power BI service, and click "Export to Power Point".

2. Republish your .pbix file to Power BI service and Export to Power Point.


3. Click your report->Edit Report->Save your report, then Export to Power Point.

Re: powerpoint export

Hi, Thanks for the ideas @v-huizhn-msft. No luck on my end though. I can do it on other reports. What could be a problem on an individual file?
