Issue with the R visuals text label

I want to post a new meesage separately, I have issue with the Rvisual after published to the server since last Thursday, not sure if there is any major update in the Power bi server site. The report is shown perfectly on the desktop, but after published to the server, the lable text shown each single word as 90 degree, and the whole lable to the angel been set (screen shot as 45 degree) . I also experience issue with the plot auto size itself after focus mode, the word been small than before. All the visuals were working perfectly before.  Can someone please help. Thank you!

Re: Issue with the R visuals text label

Hi @Shellytt

There was a bug fix a little while ago that appears to have unintentionally led to this regression. We already know the fix, we can start right away on getting it deployed, though it may take a little while.

In the meantime if this is causing issues, there is a workaround. You can add the following lines to the beginning of your R script:

if (exists("powerbi_rFontName")){
  library("showtext")
  showtext.opts(dpi = powerbi_rPngDeviceDpi)
  showtext.auto()
}

I created a PBIX with 2 R visuals, 1 without the fix and one with. I’ve pasted below 2 screenshots I took: one of the visuals in PBI Desktop, and another of the same pbix once published to service. Once the fix is deployed, these lines can be removed, but they should not cause any issues if you leave them.
 
Best Regards

Re: Issue with the R visuals text label

Hi @Shellytt

It seems to be an issue with R and Power BI Service, another post with the same issue.

I can reproduce the issue and I am checking with engineer whether it is a bug and when and how to fix it.

I will come back to tell you if there is any update.

 

Best Regards

Thank you @v-juanli-msft for looking into this, hope there will be some solutions soon as currently this affected most of our R visuals reports.

Re: Issue with the R visuals text label

I just realised I posted in the wrong topic - there is a similar issue posted under Report Server (which I think is incorrect even for the OP)...

Any updates on this please?
