Tooltip Fields Missing from Filters list

Hi,

I'm trying to use the new tooltip feature and am unable to see the "Tooltip Fields" in the list of filters on my tooltip page.

 

Steps I've tried.

 

- Updated to the latest version of Power BI (September 2018)

- Checked and Report Tooltips is not an option the preview features

- Page size is set to tooltip

 

Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi @ThomasC,

 

I'm not very clear about this sentence "I'm trying to use the new tooltip feature and am unable to see the "Tooltip Fields" in the list of filters on my tooltip page", please clarify it. 

 

After creating the tooltip page, we need to turn on the Tooltip for this page. For more information, please refer to this article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-tooltips

Re: Tooltip Fields Missing from Filters list

Hello,

I believe this is resolved.

 

I have watched multiple tutorial videos showing people dragging a field to a tooltip filter. It looks like this is from when the functionality was in preview.

The issue I had was as you said, I had not turned on the tooltip.

 

Thank you for your response!
