Yes, you can add a custom string where you want the line break (I used "(LF)" but you can use anything) and then specify this under the Newline starts with option under Format > Text for the Long Text Viewer visual (Beta v.2)
HHope that helps!
Is there still no way to get Power BI visuals to handle line breaks?
I have tried with an Excel source. The Excel sheet consist of a single column with a header and one row. In this row I have made a text with a couple of line breaks and then loaded the sheet into a Power BI Desktop model (march 2017 version).
My row show with line breaks when viewing data in Query Editor. But when I add the column to my visuals the line breaks disapear (but however show in the popup when I hover the mouse over the value).
I have tried using Table, Multi-row Card, Matrix and Matrix preview but neither will show the line break.
I also tried creating a measure, but this didn't help much. I used this formular:
Comment_Meas = CONCATENATE( VALUES(Sheet1[Comment]); "")
Is there any other way to get Power BI to accept line breaks in a text measure??
I don't think this issue has been resolved. If it has, could you direct me to the solution?
I need to display an address like this:
Instead of this:
Line 1, Line 2, City, Postcode
I'm told this is available in the July 2017 release...
The Power BI Desktop July release has word wrap support e.g. Measure = "This is the first line" & UNICHAR(10) & "This is the second line". Make sure you turn on word wrap for the grid/title for the visualization. https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-july-feature-summary-2/
