Drag/Select Visualisations

Hi All,


Problem.pngI have a problem that is driving me up the wall. I have created a Report in Desktop that works perfectly well, but when I want to Drag/Select each visualisation to edit/resize/move etc I have to precisely select the "border" of it which is difficult and time consuming. All the other reports that I have, I can select  the area above, like you woudl select the title bar in a Window. I can't see the difference between all my other reports and this one. Can anyone please help? (in the picture If I select where the red cross is nothing happens, but in my other reports, when I select where the green tick is, I can drag/select)


Thank you in advance

Re: Drag/Select Visualisations

Hi @Andshepch,

Based on my research, I am afraid you could not achieve this feature currently, I suggest you submit an idea in ideas forum:

Re: Drag/Select Visualisations

Hi Daniel,


Thanks for replying. This isn't a feature though, this is a problem I am having. I want to be able to drag things around in  my latest report in the same way that I do in all the other reports that I have written before. THere must be some setting that needs changing, and I don't know what.

Re: Drag/Select Visualisations


I noticed the same issue as well. But i noticed it when i installed the latest PowerBI desktop (October update).


Can you check if this is the case. Maybe by reinstalling a previous version?
