Simple KPI Visual

Hello friends,

I want a very simple KPI showing just one number being Red if below zero or Green - if above.

That's it.

I've tried KPI visual - and was supprised to find out that I cannot change the font size. Also it demands a time axis, which is irrelevant in my scenario (but this I've managed to overcome with measures). The font size is still a No-Go for me to use it.

I also tried a card visual - but no color rules there 

I have tried both - a Table and a Matrix with conditional formatting. Neither work, because they consider my number to be a Total if I don't put anything on rows and the conditional formatting doesn't apply on Totals.

What am I missing? A very simple task and no visual for it?

Please help

Thank you!

Try using Card With States Custom Visual.

Thanks @Vvelarde

I try to avoid Custom Visuals - not sure about their behavior with bookmarks, etc.
