Share your thoughts on the new model view UI (preview)

Hit Reply and let us know what you think of the new model view UI.  To learn more about this feature, please visit our blog.


Here are some areas that we'd like to hear about in particular:

  • Performance and the experience for large models that exceed 50 tables
    • Edit: We've heard some feedback regarding the All tables tab in the model view. If you are using a model with 50+ tables, you can mitigate some of the issues you may be facing by setting the environment variable PBI_diagramTableThreshold to a number greater than or equal to 10 and less than 1000. This environment variable allows you to adjust the number of tables that the All tables tab will show.
  • Table card tooltips and the information they display when you hover over a table header


Thanks and we look forward to hearing your feedback!

@tessahurr - I am trying to switch between DQ and dual, previously this was under setting on the right-hand side but that's now gone and the documentation has no guidance as to where that has moved to.

@alec20191104 Can you please try clicking on the table, going to the advanced settings in the properties pane, and changing the storage mode there?



@tessahurr - that's what I've been trying to do all day but there is no advanced settings in the properties pane
