Slicers Won't Print in Power BI RRS feed

  • Question

  • One big reason why we have turned to Power BI for Office 365 is to share Power Pivot models with our senior executives who all use Macs. While they have been able to successfully view the Power Pivot models and interact with the Slicers in Power BI, they have not been able to print the reports. We thought it was a Mac issue but it's happening on PCs too.  Very frustrating. There doesn’t seem to be a way to resize the report so that all columns print. So we then tried to click on the tiny button located in the bottom right corner that says “View Full-Size Workbook.” The file then opens up in Excel Online. Then when we click on the printer icon, we see the report but the slicer becomes invisible. When printing, all columns do show up however the slicer is invisible.

    Has anyone successfully printed Power Pivot reports with slicers in Power BI?

    Thank you.

  • Well I was told from someone from Microsoft at the PASS Business Analytics conference last week that this is a known problem and is on list of things to be fixed in the next 12-18 months.  For now, I need to build my slicers synchronized with cube formulas to display what the slicers are selecting in words outside of the slicers themselves.
