New measure doesn't look like Whole Number

Hi all,

I'm creating a new measure and the type is Whole number.
For Ex measure something like this.

measure = 28174722


When I use this measure on components it looks like text. There is no thousand separator.

Actually this is a whole number and its default behaviour should be like a whole number.
I have to do change the measure one by one each time to show it with thousand separator

Is there any global change for this settings ? I don't want to add separator step by step to my measures. If it is an integer it must be have thousand separator.

@mnstklm33 , I did not see any setting in options and settings. Ideally, regional setting should help:https://superuser.com/questions/1419853/power-bi-desktop-number-format-shows-american-format-in-visu...

 

But in the model view(relationship view), you can select more than one column /measure and change their properties together.

Re: New measure doesn't look like Whole Number

HI @mnstklm33,

AFAIK, current power bi not auto display the thousand separators on number fields. 

For instead, the big numeric values will auto change the display unit to thousand/million based on the thousand places.

Maybe tou can refer to amitchandak 's suggestion to bulk change on table properties or try to submit an idea for improving this scenario.
