Value Decimal Places greyed out. Why?

Does anybody know what causes Value Decimal Places to be greyed out in the formatting options?  This is happening to me regardless of the visual type.  It's happening both for measures and aggregated fields.  It's happening regardless of the field modeling.  I simply do not have the option to change the decimal places.

Click on Auto to get the blinking cursor and scroll your mouse wheel. Revert to default if you want auto again.

MS designs some of the worst user interfaces. So much time wasted on dealing with stuff like this - hope I can save others' time.

Hi Trudgeon,

 

This is related with your data field, could you please share some sample data? Value decimal place in data label can be selected on my side.

Re: Value Decimal Places greyed out. Why?

This item is not resolved.  I don't see how it can be a data formatting issue.  I very recently added a new card (YTD BUDGET VM) to a report and the ability to change decimal places is uneditable.  This card is from on the same exact measure as an older card (YTD VARIABLE MARGIN) which does allow me to edit the decimal places.  It is the same measure.

 

The only reason I think of is perhaps a recent update from Microsoft removed this functionality.  I don't know.  I'm at a loss
