Paginated Report Hidden columns and toggle rendering improperly once published

I have a paginated report I developed that has some groups and a toggle. 


When I run the report in report builder it works perfectly. There are hidden columns with a blue colored header to the right that appear when I hit the + sign and everything is in a nice row. Below is shown collapsed.



When I publish to however and run it, it renders really funky. Almost like the green columns are duplicated and word wrapped. I cannot figure out how to stop this behavior once published.

I was able to solve my problem by running the report in the Power BI Service and under the file menu disabling the preview features (see image, highlighted part previously said disable preview features). 


However, it seems as though every user would have to go in and disable this setting for the report to render correctly for them which is unacceptable. Is there any workaround to this?




As an update, I opened a ticket with Microsoft and they are looking into the issue here. I will update with any information I find out. 


Update 1/13/2023: Microsoft was able to recreate the bug on their end and they have confirmed this is a bug. They are working on their end on a fix. They will provide me with an ETA soon but typically it takes 3-5 weeks. 

Hi @rbrocks 


That is a great find, I do think they all would need to do this.

Hi @GilbertQ thank you for the suggestion. It turns out I was not using the most updated version. I apparently have two versions, one from the store and one I downloaded. The one that the file was opened with was not updated. 


I did update my version, opened the file again, and republished but the issue remains in the service.
