Scatter Chart - Minimum Point Size



Having a real issue with the scatter chart in PBI.  I can't get the smallest value to go smaller than a certain size.


Do we know if this is being worked on by the development team or is there a workaround anyone knows on?

Re: Scatter Chart - Minimum Point Size

This is a really problematic issue. I have created the same chart in both Power BI and Excel to compare the difference.

The chart in Power BI suffers from the minimum dot sizes being far too large (and so misrepresenting the data).






















The version in Excel is a vast improvement, so much clearer...

Hi there,

I haven't used it recently, but no, I didn't find a solution at the time. I ended up using Excel for that plot.
