Card Text Now Only Center Aligned within the box?

I just downloaded the July version of Power BI Desktop. It appears as though that text dynamically generated via DAX in a measure in a Card visualization can only be centered aligned within the visualization "box" area? I'm sure I've left-aligned text in a measure before, but am coming up blank for where / how to do this again. Surely it's possible. 

 

Note #1: I'm not referring to using the Align icon within the Format ribbon used to align the entire visual, just the text "inside.

Note #2: I'm also not referring to aligning the Title of the measure itself, just the dynamically generated text.

 

I'd appreciate any thoughts and guidance. 

 

Thanks.

@jschlereth,

There is no option that could be used to set the text alignment for data in Card visual. An idea of this issue has been submitted in this link, you can vote it up.

Additionally, you can create a Multi-row card instead, text is left-aligned in the visual.

As of November 2018 update, Having a single value in a multi row card causes default color customization within the "Data Label" well.

The issue with this solution Lydia, is the "multirow" card won't change the format of a "data label" unless there at least 2 values there. 

 

In trying to put 2 measures in (I have 5 text measures for my report in a list I want to use):

These two values, don't load in as "rows" but as "columns"  so the "multirow" is more "multi column" 

 

Short of an addon (which I won't get through infosec) or running the query in SQL to get it loaded into one table first (which is a bit more overengineering that I feel should be necessary), I am not sure what I could do

It is frustrating. But you can download Advance Card addin app. https://store.office.com/addinsinstallpage.aspx?rs=en-US&assetid=WA104381651

To give the appearance of left-aligned text, I have added a load of spaces to the end of my dynamic text.  It is not a neat solution but at least it is simple.
