When will exporting to PowerPoint with the in-session applied filters be supported? 

Frequent Visitor


Still reading thru the thread. In case I missed it. Can tables be edited as well after pptx export?

Why are R-custom-visuals not supported? This makes things much more complicated. =( Please fix!

Grouped visuals, introduced in the August 2019 update, appear to all align to the top left corner of the page when exported to PDF or PowerPoint.  Below is a screen shot of the PowerBI Desktop file then the published report exported to both PDF and PPTX.  I have also tested this in both Chrome and Edge with the same results.  

The good view in PowerBI desktop:

The bad view after export:

Has anyone else run into this behavior?  I really like the grouped items for working with bookmarks so I am hoping this get fixed soon.

It is possible to write notes into the powerBI file that would be exported as notes into PowerPoint? Notes are most often used in PowerPoint to remember things that you do not want to show in the actual visual.

I guess an option would be to use PowerBITiles, but it would be great if it could be part of the standard functionality.

Thank you,

Kind regards
