Is there a way to copy a visual to your clipboard in its entirety?

When I copy a visual to clipboard as stated in this guide  (I typically click on the copy visual button as shown in screenshot), the output is limited by only showing the first segment of data that fits in that table/matrix.

 

In this particular example, we very frequently (10-20/week) send out these tables with the last 90 days of data. The current process is exporting to excel, cleaning up the formatting, and then saving as a pdf before emailing them out. Copying as a visual would eliminate numerous steps, except the output only shows the first 12 or so dates. Going into focus mode before copying does expand the width of the table somewhat, but ultimately still nowhere near enough to show the most recent 90 days of data. Scrolling over to another segment of dates before copying still returns the 12 dates.

 

Is there a way to export the entire visualization ignoring the width of that table? Any suggestions on how else to structure this to make it easier?

Re: Is there a way to copy a visual to your clipboard in its entirety?

No, it will always only render the visible part.  Keep in mind that behind the scenes Power BI does not actually compute parts of the visual that are not currently visible. It is doing paged computes, so to speak.

 

Instead of copying the visual you need to connect to the data (for example Analyze in Excel) to customize the visualization.

 

Or, you know, show fewer columns/rows !
