Click instead of Ctrl+Click to select single table row

Hi all,

 

I have a report with three tables. There are defined filtering interactions between them so if something is picked in the first table the second one is populated, and further picking a row in the second table populates the third. The problem is that selecting a single row in the second table requires using Ctrl+Click. If only mouse click is used for the second table (or the third as well) all the selections in all tables disappear and I'm back to the starting point.

Is there a way to bypass this Ctrl+Click to select a single row in the described scenario and use just a mouse click instead?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

No. That is how the UI was written. You might check your PC Accessibility options which has a feature called "Sticky Keys" that will cause things like SHIFT, CTRL, etc. to remain in effect after releasing them for a few seconds. Just search for Accessibility from the Windows 10 menu.

HI @eddie_bw,

In fact, this is a normal scenario of power bi interaction logic and you can't do modify them.

For the general click operations, it means to cancel the previously operated on visualization and focuses on the current target visual. (they will remove the visual level interaction which you processed on the focus mode)

I'd like to suggest you create slicers to correspond to different table visuals, the previous selections not auto clean up when you leave from the visuals.
