@yoshihirok

 

For the first issue, I cannot repro with your PBIX file on my side.

For the second issue, you need to turn on Header to show the display type.

Please refer to the video below.

Hi there,

 

Happy to try to assist. I've uploaded a video where you can find the orientation section of a slicer in PBI. Could you take a quick look and tell me if you can access orientation following these steps?

Hi @Reid_Havens thank you for your reply.

 

Yes, There are Orientation in "format" pane before March 2016 of Power BI Desktop.

I create some report by Orientation - Horizontal.

 

and, There are Orientation in Power BI Service, now.

 

But, There are NOT Orientation in March 2016 of Power BI Desktop.

My report automatically changed.

 

So, This is serious ISSUE.

Hi @yoshihirok,

 

So there's a few extra steps involved now that they implimented some additional features for date type fields. There is still an orientation selection, but it is hidden until you change the slicer back to a list first. I've included a video of how to do that here. Let me know if this solves the problem.

Hi Reid, thank you for your reply with a video.

 

I find a new issue relate this issue.

 

ISSUE: The slicer which created before March 2017 miss the display type like list/dropdown.

 

Reproduce step:

1. Open a pbix file which create before Power BI Desktop March 2017, and include slicer.

2. View the report include slicer.

3. There are not the display type like list/dowpdown/etc.

 

Now two issue are there.

Issue 1. The slicer which create before Power BI Desktop March 2017, and set orientation - horizontal,

  change the display type to "Between".

Issue 2. The slicer which create before Power BI Desktop March 2017, does not have the display type.

 

Regards,

Yoshihiro Kawabata

HI @Reid_Havens

 

File: SlicerTest1.pbix

Locate: OneDrive

URL: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Atq5VZciuslq26t91m4LOiIh7oK6Ow

 

This file create from my old reports file,

which may used over several months.

 

Now, I'm confusing.

This file's slicer have "Orientation" property,

but does NOT have display type like list/dropdown.

Yoshihiro Kawabata
