Word Wrap disappearing when report published to Report Server

Created a report using PBI Desktop, and took about an hour to get the column headings right on this matrix, as I have three matrixes showing the same columns, but from different sources and can't find a way to make all of the headings the same size.  However, it looks ok, and most of the headings are wrapped.

But when I publish this to my report server, the word wrap disappears.

Any suggestions gratefully received (mostly concerned about the word wrap not happening on the server)

 

EDIT***  Forgot to say in my original post that I have tried turning off column auto resize on the the report, made no diffierence.

Re: Word Wrap disappearing when report published to Report Server

It looks like the update (2018 March) solved the problem, likely it was a bug which got fixed.

 

What I noticed is that when I opened my reports with the updated desktop app, the "Word Wrap" was OFF, I set it to ON, uploaded it, and it worked.

Re: Word Wrap disappearing when report published to Report Server

Hi @SkinnyPete63,

 

Based on my test, to keep the column headers wrapped after being published to Report Server, we should turn on the "Auto-size column width".

Re: Word Wrap disappearing when report published to Report Server

Hi Yuliana

 

Thanks for your response, but your solution does not work.  Even if it did, as soon as I refresh my report, I lose all of my column widths.

 

Just to check, here is where I have set the option you mention;

And when I publish, the headings are not word wrapped.

Hi @SkinnyPete63,

 

You should turn on the "Auto-size column width" option, meanwhile, turn on the "Word wrap".

Hi @SkinnyPete63,

 

Not a solution, but just to say I have the exact same problem. I believe it's a Server problem. The word wrap functionallity doesn;t seem to work for column headers, values... not even for card visuals.

Thanks again @v-yulgu-msft, but I have tried all combinations of this, and my server still won't show wrapped column headings.

Re: Word Wrap disappearing when report published to Report Server

Hi @v-yulgu-msft

 

Thanks for the feedback.  I have tested with Chrome, Firefox and IE11, none of which wrapp the column headings.

 

Just a thought, could it be because my report server is the development version, rather than the production version?  We have not set up our production server yet, which is why we are using a development licence at the moment.

Hi @SkinnyPete63,

 

Just wanted to say that I tried overwriting my report a few times, and all visuals where I have used word wrap now work. maybe you could give it a go?

Cristina
