Use my own images for arrows, or good Unichar ones

Is there a way I can use my own images for up and down arrows?  If not how can I fix these arrows so they are the same height?

 

I've tried this link for unicode arrows but the problem is they are different sizes.  I need a green up arrow and a red down arrow that I can use in cards and a table.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Why don't you use the black arrows and then use the conditional formatting to give you the colours?

 

UP Arrow = UNICHAR(9650)

DOWN Arrow = UNICHAR(9660)

Then you can adjust the size at will.

@MFelix ,

 

That looks like it'll work for the tables but is there a way to apply conditional formatting to a card?  I suppose I could potentially use "Card with States".....

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Looking at your image I was assuming that you add a table.

 

Check this post were it shows how to embebed images on your PBI file could work as expected.

Hello! UNICHAR seems to not work anymore with measure ...

Have you ever face that issue ? 

Measure such as UP:UNICHAR(9660) is okay but not in switch or IF fx, I do not understand, 

ANy idea?

HI @Julien_F ,

 

Believe your issue is regarding the comma separator because you are comparing to 0. Had the same issue some time ago because it confused the comma for separating the parameters with comma of decimal try making the following change:

 

 

Measure = SWITCH(TRUE() , Table[YOY_DIFF] < 0 , unichar(9116) , BLANK())

it's just making a space betweem the several commas but can work.
