secondary axis

Currently using Power BI Desktop (just downloaded last week). I'm trying to create chart with secondary axis (Y-axis). However, in the tool, when I select from Visualization pane, 'Y-Axis' then 'Show secondary', nothing happens. In the video, I see that underneath that option when it is selected, there are other options to select like position it on 'right' side.  

Please advise.

Hi,

 

Can you try adding the metric (which you want to display in secondary axis ) to the line values

Hi Xiaoxin,

 

I have a dummy pbix file with the example but I don't see a way to upload to here. 

How can I upload file or upload screenshot?

 

thanks!

See blue arrow

1) The chart isn't showing the secondary axis

2) From videos I've seen that there should be more options below once it is set to 'On'. But there's nothing showing here.
