Percentage Conversion - Power BI Desktop

Hi team,


I am pretty new to Power BI Desktop. I have been trying to convert my values to %, and it hasn't been working. 

For example, if I have 0.10 and press "%" button on the ribbon under 'Modeling' tab, it won't convert the number to 10%. I have figured out a way around it by using format() function, but it's rather inconvenient.


Is there a solution to this problem? 


Thank you!

I'm having a slightly different problem. I have a list of decimal numbers that I just want to change to percentages. For example, I have 75.577 and I want to convert to 75.6%. However, in the "Edit Queries", it changes it to 7,557.7%. Anyone have and idea how to fix this?

I had this issue for a while but the newest version of Desktop seems to have fixed it for me. I am on:


2.33.4337.501 64-bit (March 2016)
