Changing Export Control in Report Settings alters Report Formatting

I was testing the new ability to restrict who can export the data of a given Report in the Service as part of the October 2018 update.

 

I have this nifty data story on my coffee spend that I use for such tests. When I changed the Report's "Export Data" setting from "Summarized Data" (the default) to "None", it also did the following:

  • Turned all Visual Borders off
  • Turned all Visual Backgrounds off
  • Turned all Visual Titles off
  • Broke my Bookmarks/Buttons (they just stop responding)
  • Removed my Custom Color Theme (though curiously the legend still shows the old color)

I know the change to Export caused it because I didn't change anything else, the "surprise" change is reflected in the Workspace while the "correct" formatting still shows in the App.

 

I restored the original formatting by republishing my PBIX file, but when I tried the Export Control again I saw the exact same unintended formatting change. My Power BI Desktop is version September 2018.

 

See the "Before" & "After" images below. I'm assuming this is a bug?

Hi @Vishneskij,

 

If I understand your scenario correctly that the "Before" image is the Report setting for Summarized Data  and the"After" image is the Report setting for None?

 

If it is, I cannot reproduce your issue in my Power BI Service.

If it is convenient, could you share a dummy pbix file which can reproduce the scenario, so that I can have a test in my site? You can upload it to OneDrive or Dropbox and post the link here. Do mask sensitive data before uploading.)
