I recently made a report that I really like. The problem though is that in order to maximize space I placed the dropdown slicer for my area charts on the chart, near the labels. I think this looks really good and it is intuitive that this slicer only applies to this chart. After publishing the chart though I learned that if someone clicks the chart it pulls the chart forward and pushes the slicer to the back. In order to get the slicer back you have to click a blank space on the canvas. This is not very intutive. Is there anyway to keep power bi sevice from readjusting the layering of my charts and slicers?
I think it is hard to find a perfect solution. If we keep the slicer in the front, how can we use the part of the chart covered by the slicer. If we create a button, what is the difference with the blank place. Maybe you could submit an idea here: power-bi-ideas.

I would really like to see the a little bit more control over the interactions of layering. I completely understand why there are instances where you would want to click something in the background and pull it forward. There are also a lot of times where I would not want that though. Another example was that I created a header section using a rectangluar block with a border. This held my page slicers. If someone clicks the box though it pulls it in front of the slicers. That is more of a hinderance now than anyhing. If they could include a feature that would allow you to glue the layering of specific charts together that would be awesome.
