Show Data data table is light gray

I am hoping there is an easy fix for this. In Desktop (and the Service, it's happening in both), when I click "Show Data" from a visual, the data table is in light gray text and is virtually impossible to read. I'm live-connected to SSAS and the data is hidden from client tools in SSAS but I don't think that has anything to do with it, as I unhid the data, re-deployed, and it was still grayed out. Also, the data is there, it's just very very faint. This is happening with every visual on my report. I looked in the formatting pane and didn't see anything that would control this...any ideas? Thanks.

Re: Show Data data table is light gray

@v-yuezhe-msft @bcannariato I figured it out! I was (inadvertently) using a custom report theme which changed the font color of all my fields. For some reason the color looked fine in Desktop but didn't render very well for some reason in the Service. Once I removed the custom theme, all was well. Hope this solves your issue @bcannariato

Re: Show Data data table is light gray

@alex_cook,

What version of Power BI Desktop do you use and do  you connect to tabular model or multi-dimension model? I am unable to reproduce your issue in the latest version of Power BI Desktop.

Re: Show Data data table is light gray

I see the same problem on both desktop and in the browser.

 

When I click "show data" it opens up the table and it's in unreadable grey background with white text, similar to the original poster.

 

 

 

Anybody have a workaround to change the colors?

Re: Show Data data table is light gray

@v-yuezhe-msft Do you have any other ideas why this might be occurring? I've tried everything: hiding / unhiding SSAS tables from client tools, changing font colors / formatting of underlying visuals, etc. Nothing seems to work. Very strange.
