Do you may have an outdated report created in 2016? In the event you do, then you recognize that the visuals’ type was fairly totally different again then. In the event you don’t prefer to see all visuals of their outdated type the place the headings overlap the opposite visuals and also you don’t know the right way to swap the visuals to their trendy type, then proceed studying. The next screenshot is from a really outdated report I constructed for a Energy BI demo in Feb 2016! Time flies mate!
If you’re an outdated Energy BI developer, you’ll be able to clearly bear in mind these days after we had many side-by-side slicers on the report canvas and generally it was laborious to click on a slicer as a result of hovering over the visuals prompts the visible frames and it’s simple to mistakenly click on a distinct visible.
The opposite concern with the outdated visible type is that the Visible Header choices of the Visualisations pane from the Format tab aren’t out there for conventional visuals.
I see some builders don’t just like the outdated visible type. It’s fascinating that after we work on an outdated report, even when we open the report within the newest model of Energy BI Desktop, the visuals’ type stays the identical and it doesn’t change if we add new visuals to a brand new web page. Some builders undergo loads of ache to get the visuals to work within the trendy type. I even know some builders copied all queries from the outdated file’s Energy Question and pasted them to a brand new Energy BI file. Then they used Tabular Editor to repeat the tabular objects from the outdated report back to the brand new one. And a few even began to construct every part from scratch. If you’re a kind of builders, bear in mind that there’s a easy setting that may assist to shortly swap all of the outdated visuals to their new trendy type.
Observe these steps after opening an outdated report within the newest model of Energy BI Desktop:
- Click on File menu
- Click on Choices and settings

Voila! That’s it. Now you can benefit from the trendy visible header and styling.
