Stacked Area chart displays line for 0 values

Hello, I've got a chart that is behaving strangly. Is this a bug?

How can I switch up the order of the stacked areas?

Why is the yellow line not following the top of the green area, as would be expected?

No, "Show items with no data" is not checked.

Hi @jengwt,


As I tested, if the yellow line contains value 1,0,0, it will not display the line as a line cross other areas. Would you please update the Power BI desktop to the latest version then test again?


If the issue persists, would you please share some sample data for us to reproduce the issue?

@v-qiuyu-msft I am on the latest version.

I went to go get another screenshot for you and some sample data, but the yellow line was gone. I don't have an explanation. The only change we made was adding a slicer in to filter the data for the red, green, and yellow blocks.
