Infographic - bar or column with shapes: how to get 1 icon per measure value (count)

I am working on a visual for a count of people by categories as a Infographic bar chart (showing a “people” icon).  It kind of works, but with my data the max count in any category is 9.  So I’m confused to see more than 9 people icons appearing in the longest “bar”. 

 

How can I configure my infographic to show exactly the number of icons matching the value in my measure?

 

Under the Shape / Format, I have currently set:

 

Multiple Units = On

Column Count = Auto

Units per Column = Custom / 1

Fill Percentage = same Measure

 

Intuitively I would expect that to produce the result I want, but it doesnt.

 

I've tried emailing the Infographic team, but they havent responded after 10 days.

Hello @mike_honey,

 

Did you send an email to infonice@microsoft.com? I suppose that we might provide direct contact to Infographic Designer team.

Yes I did, but I never got a reply.  One did eventually reply after I forwarded my inquiry to all the individual researchers listed ...

 

Anyway the answer was essentially: no it doesnt do it at present, but they will consider it for a future version.
