Customize data labels in dual axis line chart not working (march 2020 update)



I'm using the new dual axis line chart functionality introduced in the last months, but I'm not able to customize data labels. While it works for the labels of all variables (in Y1 and Y2), when I try to customize series selecting just one variable and changing the data label settings (text size/color, background color, etc.), it immediately switches back to default.


Are you experiencing the same issue?


Thank you in advance.

Hi @MarcoB


What's the exact Power BI desktop did you run? Based on my test in Power BI desktop version 2.79.5768.1082 64-bit (March 2020), it's able to customize data labels in dual axis line chart. Please run the same desktop version as our then test again.

Hi @v-qiuyu-msft! Thank you for your answer!


I'm running exactly that version of Power BI Desktop.

Actually, what I'm not able to do is to modify label settings of only one of the lines in the chart, with "Customize series" ON.


Thank you in advance for your help.
