Another way to show when Power BI is "calculating"?

Not sure if this is the right place for this, but I have a question for when Power BI is "calculating" results.   It's the dark dotted circle that keeps moving.

 

Is there another way we can let the users know this is happening?   My problem is that I have dark backgrounds on some of my reports and some of them take several seconds to calculate.  However, the user cannot see that Power BI is calculating because the dark moving circles are blended into the background.   

 

I pulled numbers the other day thinking it was done and a couple of seconds later, there was different information there.

Re: Another way to show when Power BI is "calculating"?

I'm afraid there isn't another way of showing that the visualizations are changing.  There are various techniques for people using dashboards that refresh automatically (e.g. showing the last date it was updated), but this doesn't work when you have dynamic filters on your report page that force a re-calc on the visual.
