Quick question: default removing of axis titles

Hi all! 

 

Is there any way to set the axis titles to be disabled as a default? Maybe with a theme file (json)? I personally don't like them in my visualizations and it's a pain in the neck (on in the wrist) to always manually turn them off.

Hi @Heidi ,

As mentioned by @SivaMani , you can change the corresponding properties by customizing the theme file. Here is a resource about "Snippets for assembling Power BI Themes", you can refer to it, the following is an example of Line.json:

Re: Quick question: default removing of axis titles

I got it! I had to change a little bit of the answer @SivaMani gave to get the desired outcome! This gave me the outcome I was looking for: 

 

"categoryAxis":[{"show":true,"showAxisTitle": false}],
"valueAxis":[{"show":true,"showAxisTitle": false}],

@Heidi,

Yes, you can do this with custom theme. Please check the below mentioned properties,
"categoryAxis":[{"show":false}],
"valueAxis":[{"show":false}]

Hope it will help you. I appreciate your kudos!
Thanks,
Siva Mani

Re: Quick question: default removing of axis titles

Thank you both for the answers! 

 

Did I understand correctly that you have to define this for each visual separately? If so, that's a bummer, but maybe it'll be beneficial in the long run to do a style file as complete as possible.

Sorry for the double post! 

 

I tried your solutions, @SivaMani, but it removed all axis' information. I only want to remove the title information, not the values of the axis. The title is the text below the values.
