'First' added by Power BI to the Column Name in tooltip

Hi All,


I added a descriptive column(Data type and format: text) to the tooltip of a bar chart, and 'First' was automaticly added in front of the column name. Anybody know how to handle this situation?


Column Name: Up/Down

Data tyoe: Text

Format: Text

Data Category: Uncategorized

Default Summarization: Don't summarize


after being added to the Tooltips, the column name became 'First Up/Down' under Tooltips, and there's no option like 'Don't summarize'. The column name was 'First Up/Down' in tooltip on the chart.

The Tooltip by default always try to Summarize or show a value (Like First, Last, Earliest,etc).
