Hey @PBIUser007 ,

 

there is a simple answer - no.

I assume you want to set a filter, but you want to "lock" the selection.

 

You can achieve this using a filter in the filter panel.
I often do this in combination with a simple measure, that I can use with a textbox or a card visual.

 

Another approach could be to overlay the slicer with a simple textbox/button/shape and make this object transparent. Personally, I do not like this approach that much as it creates clutter.

 

Hopefully, this provides some ideas on how to tackle your challenge.
