Power BI Themes

blog0 comments

Theme options in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint have been available for a while now. They give your content a consistent set of fonts, colours and effects.

Microsoft has identified this feature was badly needed for Power BI also, as the built-in colour scheme for Power BI visuals wasn’t pleasing and modifying it could be challenging.

Thankfully, Microsoft has announced that the Power BI team recently added the option to apply new built-in themes to Power BI reports, similar to what you can do with Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

You’ll be able to see these new theme options by selecting Switch Theme in the Home ribbon in Power BI Desktop.

All you need to do is pick your desired theme from one of seven new options, and it will be applied to all your visuals that use the default colour palette. You can also find a link to the report theme gallery in the same place which contains additional community-developed themes.

In addition, you will find help on creating your own theme if, for example, want to create one based on your organisation’s branding.

This update also includes a preview of a PDF file connector that lets you access table data in PDF files, and a lot more.
