Line Chart Short Name for months X axis

Hello there,

 

I am using 'Categorical' for X axis, because I want to see all months on the X axis. (See first screenshot)

However, I would like to have 'Short Month/Year' like   OCT 2020 (See screnshot below) But below, it is continous measure, so it does not show all months.

@Ahmet_Oz , Sorting is correct. I only see jump because of continuous axis

 

Usually month need a sort column

Month Year = FORMAT([Date],"mmmm-yyyy")
Month Year sort = FORMAT([Date],"yyyymm")

Month Year is sorted on Month Year  sort -https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-sort-by-column
