Some Report features have different appearance in Web/App

Hi all,


I was wondering if there is a way to do a Preview that would Emulate the appearance of a Report when opened Online (PBI App/Web).

I have a button that has the correct appearance (show the whole button text) when I designed it on PBI Desktop, but once I open this Report in, the button does not show the full text anymore. I have tried different viewing modes online (Fit to Page, Full Screen) but it's always the same wrong appearance.


Any help with this is appreciated.

@FredSilva I would put this in - that's a poor experience. I've noticed there are some formatting things that get toggled off occassionally, you might want to check that the settings you saved in the Desktop are the same in the Service.
