KPI text size

[Update: actual issue not fixed, but accepting a workaround as a potential solution]

 

All,

 

I've noticed from previous posts that you can't change the wording of "goal" on the KPI visual, although that would be nice. Different question:

 

Given the layout of my report, the "Goal: etc." text is far too small to read, and 8.63 doesn't need to be quite that large.

I'm not seeing a way to increase subheading font size and decrease the callout font size. Am I missing something, or is this not a current functionality?

 

If not, I'll post in Ideas - it probably should be.

This is a pretty easy to follow walkthrough of a basic "Hello World" type visual

I followed it the other day and had a fully packaged pbiviz file within 30 mins.

Re: KPI text size

Hi @RMDNA

 

Depending on how flexible you need to be with your report page, you can apply a hack which should make the font size larger.  Just reduce the underlying height and width of the page size.  To access this, just click a blank area of your report page and set the custom height and width to smaller values.

Unfortnately, the reason the text is unreadable is because we're using a larger custom page size, which can't be changed for various reasons.

Re: KPI text size

Thats a shame.  There are some other KPI based visuals in the Custom Visual gallery.  Have you had a look through these?  

 

Would you consider building a custom visual yourself?  If you are only keen to display some basic text and no graphics, it might be a pretty easy one to knock up.

Re: KPI text size

I hadn't actually thought of that. I have no idea how they're created, unless there's a tutorial, but I can look into it. Good idea.

Not the easiest or most efficient solution, but I'll take it. Thanks for the idea.

Re: KPI text size

Does anyone know if there is a way to change the size of the KPI text?  I like the functionality of the standard KPI visual but want to be able to edit the text size?

Re: KPI text size

Hi,

I also need to change the text size of KPI visual. In Mobile, it occupies more space. 

 

Thanks,

Yoga

Re: KPI text size

The KPI text size is currently way too large. +1 for adding an option to change the percentage font size!
