Hide visual header options

Hi guys,

Can I hide the visual header in power bi desktop and power bi service?

- In power bi desktop I don't have the option: "File -> Options and Settings -> Options -> Report Settings" and check the box "Hide the visual header in reading view", how can I hide this option?

The hide visual headers is possible only in the power bi service online?

@twister8889 you can get the options in power bi desktop to  hide the visuals.However since destop will be in edit mode it wont work on it and  also when you  open the report in power bi service in edit mode you will be able to see the headers of visuals.
 Once you published, you will no longer see the header for any visuals in your report when it’s being consumed/Viewed

Hope it resolves your issue? Please consider accepting it as the solution to help the other members find it more quickly.
