I have many column headings which are quite long. In Excel I can change the text alignment so the column heading runs vertically rather than horizontally. By using a smaller font it can display a lot more information this way. Now that you have added vertical data labelling to charts can we have similar functionality in the tables and matrices?

Would make the Matrix so much more useful.

It would be nice when this feature would be added. Scrolling can be pain with a lot of coloumns

Quite unbelievable this isn't supported. My customer is probably going to resort to Excel and dump Power BI over this one.

This would be brilliant for Column Headers where the value is a date in YYYY-Mmm format

I can't believe this was not part of the original release. Please make it available. Adding ticker borders to the matrix will also be useful.
