I have just updated to the November version of PBI Desktop and my report themes are no longer saving. I have tried re-saving the JSON files with a new name but they are still not applied when I re-open the reports. Has anyone else had this issue and if so is anyone aware of a fix?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The December version of PBI has been released. And this issue is fixed.
It works fine in my test. How can I reproduce your issue? What I have done:
1. Download a theme from here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Themes-Gallery/Spring-Day-Expos%C3%A9-Data/m-p/147299;
2. Create a simple report with a table visual. The default color is blank.
3. Import the theme file.
4. Save the file and close.
I do this but the theme does not 'stick' and I have to re-apply each time I open the report. This did not happen for me in the October release. I have tried this with several themes and the result is the same each time. I have used themes from the gallery and modified themes. It seems like I am not the only one but that this is not a universal issue for all users.
There is a new release for November. Please try it. Since I can't reproduce it locally. Could you please share your file and the steps that I can use to reproduce?
The steps were:
create a new report, apply custom theme, save and close report. Re-open report and theme has not been applied. This only started happening when I updated to November release.
Just to be clear, is there another November update or do you mean the November update I already installed? My current version is:
Version: 2.52.4921.461 64-bit (November 2017)
Same problem over here. Created a new report in the november version of Power BI desktop. Imported my company theme and saved the report. Every time I open the report the theme has disappeared and I have to import it again.
I have reported this issue to the Product Team. Please wait for the reply. Thanks in advance.
This issue will be fixed in the release of December 2017.
