I'm losing Excel cell word wrapping in Dashboard tiles

I've uploaded an Excel file to PBI Service and created a simple dashboard consisting of a pinned group of cells.

The problem is the cells in the source are formatted with word wrapping but when I create a dashboard tile that formatting disappears so the text runs into the adjacent columns.

Any ideas how I can allow the dashboard tile to keep text wrap formatting?

 

E.g. This is what the workbook looks like in PBI Service. Note cell A2 has word wrapping:

Does Power BI have a solution to this yet?  I am having the same issue.

Hi @SteveCarter1,

It seems like your snapshots not loading correctly. Can you please share more details about your scenario?

BTW, power bi tiles do not keep raw report/contents layout for specific styles. If you want to keep raw graph, you can consider using 'pin live page', but it seems not works for excel workbooks.

Pin an entire report page, as a live tile, to a Power BI dashboard

Hi

 

Thanks for the reply.

Example Excel Workbook uploaded to Power BI Service is shown here (Note the long line of text is correctly wrapped inside the cell):

If I then pin those cells to a Dashboard tile the wrapping formatting is lost for some reason:

HI @SteveCarter1,

I can reproduce this on my side, it seems like power bi tiles do not keep these settings that applied on the workbook side. Perhaps you can submit an idea to keep these layouts.
