Sub Total formatting in cross tabs not retained on Report Server

Hi,  some sub total formating that i apply in Desktop (May 2022 RS version) on cross tab tables is not being retained after loading to the server (May 2022 Report Server).  In particular if i set the table 'Style' to 'None' and then apply sub total formatting it's not being retained.  (I am setting the initial format style to 'None' as i want to start with a transparent table). 


Example crosstab:


How it looks on Desktop:



How it looks after loading to Report Server:




You can see that any formatting i apply to the Sub total columns is lost.  i.e. any background colour reverts to nothing and any text colour reverts to black.

Hi @wellf100 ,


Just a quick check with you if your report has a custom theme applied in Desktop for Power BI Report Server? Does this issue occur after the custom theme is modified?

Hi, i have tried creating a new blank report with no theme at all and the same happens.  


I also cleared my browser cache and no difference.

in fact setting the table 'style' makes no difference.  regardless of the style any formatting of sub totals is not retained.
