Copy Data from cell in table

Hi,

 

Is it possible to copy the value from cell of table or matrix visualization in Power BI.

 

I am aware of Export functionality, but I am looking to copy only specific cell value(Cntrl+C) and paste it in notepad as an example.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Mehul Thakkar

To the best of my knowledge, you cannot do that.


Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!

When will this be fixed. I consider it a bug. You can copy and paste cells in Excel.

Our end users want this ability on a daily basis. The competition does this. Power BI needs to do this.

I stumbled across this, this morning. It looks like they may have just released the ability to copy the cell or the selected value.

I'm not able to see what shown. Did you try on Power BI desktop or web services?

How to request this "feature" to be part of future release?
