Cannot resize matrix or table columns in Power BI Desktop

I have a number of reports that are uploaded to and using embedded services, are displayed within our clients sites.


For the last month or so I have lost all ability to resize table and matrix column widths, I am presented with the cursor change but the resize does not action. I can toggle auto-size on and off, this will change the width to auto-size when first toggled on but then when toggled off, column widths still cannot be edited.


I have tried to insert new tables but to no avail, I cannot build client facing reports that can't be made presentable and even more worrying is that I need to make edits to existing reports that at present I cannot do, please help.

Hi @rtompsett,


I'm not able to reproduce the issue on my side. Please update the Power BI desktop to the latest version 2.58.5103.501 then test again. 


If issue persists, would you please share detail steps for us to reproduce the issue? Or could you share a pbix file? 


Best Regards,

I am experiencing this same problem.  I created a simple table from a dataset, turned off Auto-resize, mouse over between two column headers, get the <-> cursor, but no matter how I click and drag, it will NOT resize the column's width.

I have found that you need to have data in the table in order to resize the columns.
