Density Label BUG?

Hi, Density Label is 100% but some bars do not show a value. 

Is this a bug and how to report?

OK, after looking at this I understand what the issue is. So, first for Label density to appear you have to set the X-Axis to Continuous. Forgot about that. So, for the labels that are not appearing you appear to have 2 use cases.

 

1. You have some values of 1 and the vertical height is not tall enough in order to display the 1 text in a horizontal orientation

2. You have some values that are 2 digits and the horizontal width is not wide enough in order to display the digit text in a horizontal orientation.

 

So, what I would recommend is to first set the data label text size to 8. Then change the Orientation to Vertical and then change the Position to Auto. This allowed me to see all of the data labels.

Strange, I can't even get Label Density to appear under Data Labels. What version of Power BI Desktop are you using?

Last one.

So when you go to Diagnostics you see:

 

2.65.5313.1381 64-bit (December 2018)

 

Would love to get you PBIX file so I can see this label density on my own, I can't see to get it to even show up. But I don't know what other switches and levers your pulled in your file.
