I am creating a simple graph with two y axis. I want to use different makers for both lines. but it is not working.
version used : power BI desktop march 2020
steps to reproduce :
1. take dummy records table with three columns ( date, measure1, messure2) , measure1 and measure2 is numeric whole numbers
2.create a dual axis graph.
3. select the graph and go to "Format" pane.
4. go to customize series and enable it.
5. try to enable show marker for one of the line and it is not allowing it. this is the issue.
some more info:
if you enable common "show marker" then it is not overridden by customize series show marker.

Well done Power BI. You're supposed to act as a SQL Server front-end, yet, Excel has more functionality for visualization. Why do you even exist?
@Lewis-H here is my 2cent. Power BI is still a very young product and it is not fair to compare it with excel. These two products are for the different use case, it is like comparing apples to oranges. I think if we look where Power BI came in such a short period, it is actually very amazing and I'm sure there are drawbacks and not feature parity with 20 years old product but with continuous development in this product makes it an amazing tool. At the end of the day there are other tools available in the market, why not use those if Power BI doesn't fulfill your requirement.
update : I spent almost an hour with level 1 Microsoft support engineer but it is not fruitful.
I guess dual axis graph is new feature of march 2020 release, it was not there in Feb 2020 version.
look like it is not tested properly.
ticket is still open and they are looking into it.
@viveksingh90 indeed it was released in March 2020, and appreciate the update. Since it is reported as a support/bug, I'm sure there will be a fix at some point in time. Great work!!
Hi @viveksingh90 ,
I have tested the scenario in my environment and it looks like that could not use customize series normally as you previously said. Thanks for raising a support ticket to feedback this issue to help us improve power bi and hope to see the further update message if there has any result that could help.
