Position of Measures in PBI Desktop when connected to SSAS Tabular

When developing a Tabular Model in SSDT and testing using Excel the measures appear at the top of the PivotTable Fields pane, with dimensions below.  This the expected and a very convenient arrangement.

 

Problem: when attached to the same Tabular Model using PBI the measures are no longer grouped at the top of the Fields pane.

 

Question: is there a way/method to ensure that that measures from a Tabular Model are listed at the top of the Fields pane in PBI?

 

Thank you

 

Stephen

Re: Position of Measures in PBI Desktop when connected to SSAS Tabular

Some people create a 'dummy' table with one column.  They move all the measures there (by changing the home table of the measure) and 'hide' the single column.  This forces the table to the top of the fields list

HotChilli - works a treat.  Counter-intuitive but has helped toward my undertstanding of possibilities in SSAS Tabular and PBI model design.

 

Thank you
