Imported theme name not added to menu

When I import a custom theme into Power BI Desktop (Sept '18 release), I expect the name of the theme specified in the .json file to show up in the Switch Theme dropdown.  It does not, for me anyway.  For example, this one: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Themes-Gallery/Vintage-Theme-Expos%C3%A9-Data/m-p/147310

 

Is this the expected experience or is something wrong for me?

Re: Imported theme name not added to menu

hi,@DaleHohm

     After my research, This is the latest feature in Sep-2018 version that lets you pick between several built-in report themes.

Reference:https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-september-2018-feature-summary/

And it is not supported that switch custom theme you had imported.

when you import a custom theme and save as pbix file,

you can open pbix file by zip and then cilk Report-StaticResources-RegisteredResources

For your requirement, you could post your new idea in Power BI ideas and make this feature coming sooner .

You'd apply custom theme by using "Import Theme".

 

Once that's done. Theme is already applied.

So I take it that is the same user experience you have?  There is no indication of what theme is active, even though the json files allow you to specify a name.  I would also expect to be able to switch between named themes, including imported ones.

Hmm?

What ever is imported last is the active theme (or last drop down selected). And it's indicated by dark highlight on "import"

You'd only have single theme active per report.

 

I don't think it shows last imported theme name though. If that's what you want. May be submit Uservioce?
