Build Visuals

I need some help! When I go to build my visual in PBI the "Values" box is missing. Small multiples has taken its place. How can I get "Values" back" so I can build my visuals? I am sure it is an easy xfix but I am VERY frustrated!Missing Values.JPG

I believe the Values box has been renamed to be the Y-Axis

Thanks for your reply. 

You're right - It seems that the "Values" has been replaced by the "Y-Axis".  It makes sense, really since in vertical graphs the values you are interested in a described or measured on the Y axis. This seems to be a recent change.  I wish Msft had some sort of pop-up or additional description that indicated next to "Y-Axis" that is was alled "Values".   For horizontal graphs things are just reveresed - the detail you are measuring in (formerly "Values") would now be the 'X-Axis".

Hi @QMYork ,

May I ask what type of visual you are using? You seem to be using the new Format pane, where the Y axis option corresponds to the original Values option.

I seems I am using the new format pane.  I am not sure how I switched - perhaps a product update?  I just turned it one day and the format pane had changed.  I do see now that the "Y-Axis" serves as the "Values" feature did in the past.  I understand why that works as well; it makes sense. 

I would hope that changes like this would be supported with some type of "screen tip" or "tool tip" to illuminate this to the novice user like me.

Hi @QMYork ,

You can select File > Options and settings > Options to open Options page, uncheck the option "New format pane" under the Preview features tab to revert back to old format pane...

And you can get more details about New format pane in the following official documentation.
