Responsive visualization not working in Power BI Desktop

I  turned ON the responsive visualization for the Visual as per the post found in AUGUST 2017 Power BI Update but the visual is not getting re-sized automatically depending on the size of the screen. I am using Power BI Desktop Trial Version.   Will this feature work only in licensed version?


Please help

@sprabhu Licensing shouldn't have any effect on the functionality. It sounds like you expect the entire canvas to be responsive, and this is not how the feature works. It is only when you resize the specific visual within the canvas, not the screen, monitor or report size.

Thanks very much for your reply.
Infact I was trying or expecting the individual visual to resize not the entire canvas screen. If this is possible then by designing a visual once it would get resized in tnside the specified canvas. This would be beneficial as the visual would get resized to desktop and mobile as well.

Hi @sprabhu,


>>>Power BI responsive visualizations change dynamically to display the maximum amount of data and insight, no matter the screen size.



All the visuals are resized automatically in the mobile view. Or we can't view the reports smoothly. We can change the view of page. If you want the auto-resize feature (I think ), please submit an idea here: power-bi-ideas.Responsive visualization not working in Power BI Desktop.jpg
