FONT SIZES ARE NOT THE SAME between chart and text box

Has anyone ran into the issue that the font sizes (the actual number setting) are not universal within a report?! I am not sure if this is just me and maybe there is a setting somewhere that I can change to make sure certain that thoroughout my report and all of my data visualizations the font size means the same thing. Currently if I set the text in a textbox to size 14 and the text in a chart x- axis to 14 THEY ARE TWO DIFFERENT SIZES IRL. Proof attached below.

 

This is incredibly confusing/fustrating when trying to remain consistent throughout a report!

@austinizzo,

I can reproduce this issue in Power BI Desktop July release, I will report it internally and post back once I get updates.

@austinizzo,

I got response from PG:

"This is a known issue, some visuals are still using pt and some are using px sizing, we have a work item to track this issue but it has not been funded yet. It should be fixed next semester."

@v-yuezhe-msft can you please update us on the internal progress of this? It looks messy when you can't have consistent text sizing across visuals. Is there any way to make the two text sizes consistent until this fix?

 

Thanks

Power BI Team - are there any updates on this issue/bug? Like other users have stated, it is extremely frustrating trying to get your reports to have a consistent look due to the font sizes not always matching up.

Curious to know if there is any traction on this. Frustrated to see the last post is 8 months old.

 

I'll just throw it out there in case anyone at MS is listening:

These types of standards need to be applied to any Custom Visual marked as "Microsoft Certified" in the market place. Honestly, it's a hodge-podge crap shoot out there about font sizes.
