date slider formatting

There used to be a setting that allowed you to format the dates font colour and background on a date slider. In the new version of desktop this option appears to have been removed or changed so I can't find it! Anyone else spotted this? pictures showing format in an older pbix and a new pbix I created today but unable to make the date values font white background blue.

Date Slider now unable to select font colour for dates values

Capture6.PNGIn the latest version of the desktop it seems the ability to modify the font and background colour on a date slider have been removed? When I create a new slider I like to make the background dark with a white font but it seems that option is no longer available? Am I mising something or can this be put back?

Re: date slider formatting

Hi @gooranga1,


As you said, this feature seems removed by recently released. If you want to use it, perhaps you can post the requirement to ideas.

Re: date slider formatting

Hi @v-shex-msft I have made a post in the issues forum as well.


We also have this style as a standard so with any new pbix files we cannot adhere to that any longer. Can't understand why this functionality would be removed?

Re: date slider formatting

The Date Inputs menu option has been mysteriously removed.
