Square shape problem

Hello Power BI team,

 

I'm having an issue with shapes.  Specifically, if you add a rectangle, and turn on the line feature, the position of the line varies based on the size of the shape causing alignment problems with other shapes.

 

I've attached a png that shows the issue.  The top rectangle is aligned with the bottom rectangle which you can verify by looking at the border (in black).

 

The line feature (in red) should also be aligned, but it is not.  When you align different sized rectangles, the line and the fill are pulled away from the edge of the larger shape which makes it impossible to align differently sized shapesPowerBIShapeIssue.png.

Hey @dabutler all you have to do is not use the fill or line, just use the background for the square with whatever color you want and transparency set to what you need. Background fills a shape completely edge to edge - fill leaves slight gaps.

Hi @dabutler,

 

One possible workaround is using border instead. Please create an idea as @Anonymous suggested.Square shape problem.jpg
