Card troubles- Individual cards importing as multi-row cards

When I upload a number of individual cards into the dashboard they are no longer treated as individual cards. This has been a problem starting last week. 

Original layout with report (created on desktop application ) :tile_issue_2.PNG


how it's presented when I upload the report into the power bi web designer ( as a multi row card): tile_issue_1.PNG

To fix this issue, I have to edit every single card in the report in the web designer and change it to become a single-card again. 


I normally wouldn't have any problems with this, but we cannot set mobile alerts on a multi row card and that's currently my main use for cards .

Hello! The look and feel of the cards between the new report canvas and the dashboard should be the same - but if you're using a report created in Power View in Excel you might see some changes. Sorry it's causing you to go and adjust them all manually! If you're using the Power BI Desktop, please make sure you've got the latest version and you should see the same visuals in both places.

Thanks for the reply, WillT. I believe it's the latest version of of Power BI that has changed all of my individual cards to become multi-row cards. This wouldn't be a problem for me if I could use multi-row cards to trigger alerts on the app, but it looks like currently only individually set cards are able to trigger mobile alerts. Are there any plans to change this in the future?
