Visual locking in Reports

Hi All, 

 

I have a few PBI reports written that contain many visuals (some just used for labelling and additional information)

 

Ideally I'd like to be able to prevent them from being focused on when hovered over by a mouse or clicked on. currently it makes the visuals look very bitty. Is there a way to prevent UI interaction on some visuals and only allow some to be focused on? 

 

Thanks

 

Dog!

Yes unfortunately not currently possible.
It would be nice to have something like View Mode and Edit Mode.
And in View Mode you can only view and interact with the elements on the Page but not be able to Edit them.
There are few Ideas about this

Hope they add some functionality like this soon! 🙂

Cheers @Sean I had a thought that this may be the case. 

Agreed I think a view and edit mode would be great. I'll check out the idea link you added. 

 

Thanks
