Power BI – Building a visual on-object

New On Object

In March 2023, Power BI released On-Object! It’s a new way of build and format visuals. You can now build and format visuals directly on Visual.

This new approach makes the job of a developer much easier and faster, as you can use most of the things you need in one place.

Currently, Power BI has released this feature as "Preview features" so you have to enable it.

File > Options and settings > Options > Preview Features > On-object interaction. Then, restart desktop to see the new experience.
