Method of Filtering

Hi there, I am new to Power BI and I don't know the full functionality of the tool.

 

I am an advanced Spotfire user and one part of Spotfire's functionality I miss is the ability to highlight a section of a graph (by dragging the mouse across it) and have the details for the highlighted section populate in a table.  Is this method of filtering possible in Power BI?

 

To explain further I have a scatter plot with each point representing a person. I'd like to highlight a section of the graph (so a section of the population) and have the information for the highlight people appear in my data table I've created.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Cheers

Paul

Agree, its something a feature which Spotfire provides.

Per my experience, doesn't seem its possible today.
