Change the default value of the text size in a table, matrix

Hello,

 

I want to change the default value of the text size (for a matrix, table and other...), because the value by default is very small (8 px), and I do not want to change one by one whenever I create a table.

 

I saw this topic :

http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Change-Default-Font-Size-for-Power-BI-Desktop-for-Matrix/m-p...

 

But the proposed solution is not really clear and simple.

 

The latest versions of PBI can do that easier now ?

 

Thank you in advance,

Best regards

Go to powerbi.tips and use their tool to generate a custom style.

 totally agree, its sooo annoying that everytime you create a table the font is so small you constantly have to adjust it.  my did they pick 8??  very annoying, Tableau lets you change font size by default.  MUCH easier default customization

thanks Greg

 

1. here is the direct link, https://powerbi.tips/tools/report-theme-generator-v3/

 

2. just make the changes you need to overall defaults or to specific visualizations, then download the .json file. 

 

3. In Power BI, you then need to add the "custom report themes" functionality.  Go to Options (here is a screenshot)

 

4. Restart PBI and you will see the Themes button on your Home toolbar, just install the .json file and it will take effect
