Measure formatting changed automatically

Hi all

 

I am having this problem with PowerBI where whenever i change the formula for a measure, it defaults it's number format back to "General". I had changed it to 'Custom' (specifically "#,##0") but every time I make a tweak to the measure the format is lost!

 

Anyone else have the same issue, or a solution? 

 

Thanks!

Peter

Re: Measure formatting changed automatically

Hi @petesuen 

 

After my research , I'm afraid it couldn't achieve in Power BI for now .when you add a new measure ,you need to change the

Format of it individually, and it will not inherit the format of parent measure.

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

I'll have to test that. Perhaps try the formatting technique here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Quick-Measures-Gallery/Chelsie-Eiden-s-Duration/td-p/793639

 

You could check the Issues forum here:

And if it is not there, then you could post it.
