copy visual as an image

Hi

 

just a quick question that is making me crazy for some times now :

There is no way to right click a visual in powerbi and copy it it as an image in the clipboard (to past it easily in a email for exemple) ??? (Ctrl+C  ==> Ctrl+V)

 

That seems incredible to me that we miss that option in a microsoft software solution .... maybe i missed something 

 

 

regards

Hello @LY18 

 

Unfortunately that option is not available in Power BI. As an alternative, you can use the Snipping tool to take the screenshot and paste it on a ppt or any other file.

@LY18 , Copying a visual as an image has been added as a feature announced in April 2020.

In Power BI Desktop, there's an 'Export to PDF' feature under the 'File' Manu...  While is still doesn't turn individual visuals into images, I've used this countless times to build 'Reports in a Can' with a Cover Page Tab in PowerBI (Just Text) then each page is visuals I design speifically for export.  

 

Saved me hours of time, because each week I can 'Refresh', and Export and be DONE with a report!
