word cloud limitation

I am new user in power bi
I used word cloud but i think there is an problem and i need to make sure about it.

I used R to count the frequency of the words and one word for example "food" has almost 2380 frequency

then I used word cloud in power bi and its give me 1289 frequency for "food" word 


is there any limitation of frequency for each word in word cloud in power bi ?


hope you understand me

thank you

Re: word cloud limitation

Hi @fatima_mb,


I didn't find any document mentions about limitation to the frequency of a word in Word Cloud visual. In your scenario, please check if any filter (slicer or visual/page/report level filter) applied to Word Cloud visual. Also, please test with a smaller dataset to see if the frequency of word is the same returned by R and Word Cloud.


Best regards,
