Move up or Move Down dissappeared from Hierarchy in the Fields Pane

Hi Team


Im using February 2021 edition of Power BI Desktop and noticed that when within a hierarchy  the usual right-click on a field normally gives you the option to move a field up or down in the context me menu. These options now seemed to have disappeared from this version of power bi.

Any clue on how it's done now?

Still figuring out how to do this easily. In the meantime, I'm doing the manual override but it's definitely a hassle.

Sorry, the point was to order the fields inside the hierarchy group in the Fields pane not within visuals themselves. Else there is no point having a hierarchy group in the first place just to be manually overriden

Thanks though

Do you mean the move up and down feature? I have also test with the Feb version the feature worked fine. May I know which visual did you use and is there any changes you made on the report?

Hi Paul

I am using the Feb version also. My original thought was that my report was authored on an older version and it was like a compatability bug but then I still have the same issue with the missing Move Up and Move Down within a Hierarchy 


Strange will upload an example. Maybe my installation is broke. 🤔
