Difference in behaviour Desktop vs Service, visual header

Hello,

 

I have noticed when I create a visual in PBI Service vs PBI Desktop, the default for the visual header is different. In the picture attached, the above slicer was created using PBI Desktop and the below using PBI Service. You will notice there is a bulky visual header below but not above. That header gets in the way of other slicers and visuals occasionaly, so I would like to know how to create a visual in the Service that will have the same behaviour as Desktop.

Thanks

Hi @MCKERY ,

Based on test, I found these difference are related to 'modern visual header' option.
It will shows different visual header views after you turn on/off this option. (current I haven't found a option to change these on service side, so you had to modify it on desktop side and publish to service to replace header view)

Hi @MCKERY ,

I think you are turn on 'hide visual header in reading view mode' option, right? If this is a case, it will hide visual header in read view mode, you can find these visual headers in edit mode.
BTW, you can also turn off this option in 'option -> report settings'.

I can get it to work in Desktop but not when I create a report on Service. On Service, there seems to be no option to hide the visual header. Here is an example where it has gotten in the way of another slicer. If I build the exact same report with these two slicers in Desktop, the visual header does not get in the way. If I then publish that report to the Service, it is still fine. But if I make a fresh report on the service, there seems to be no option to change this behaviour...

Hi @MCKERY ,

I can't reproduce this, can you please share us a sample pbix file for test?

Here are two links to two documents that are different. To see the difference, click on the table. TEST.pbix shows no visible visual header. TEST2.pbix shows a visible header. The only difference between the two is I created TEST on PBI Desktop and TEST2 on PBI Service. There must be a setting somewhere that is different Service vs Desktop that triggers this difference...

Hi @v-shex-msft ,

 

Kindly let me know when you have a moment to analyse the sample files I attached to my previous reply.

Thank you!

 

It would definitely be helpful if this toggle was on the Service. Because of this limitation I cannot effectively create a report on the Service. I have to first create it on the Desktop then upload and modify.

 

As a work around, I have created a "Template" for each workspace uploaded from Desktop.

 

@v-shex-msft Thank you for your research and time.
