Values in text boxes

Hi,  when editing a report in the service it is possible to add values to a text box, however I cannot see how to do this in the Desktop version, am I missing something obvious ?

@omdavies , In the insert tab we have a text box where you can put some static text.

For dynamic Number input, we have What if Parameter -

Thanks for the reply, what I am trying to find is how you can have inline values in a text box like you can do on the service.  



Hi @omdavies ,


Do you mean the Q&A function in Power BI Desktop?

You can refer the following screenshot to add it.




Also you can configure the setting in Modeling -> Q&A setup.




If you have any question, please kindly ask here and we will try to resolve it.
