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?

PowerBI team, imagine a matrix with 120 columns, each column header avgs 54 characters. Now imagine the frustration of scrolling on the limited page size format forever trying to get to column 119 DURING A PRESENTATION.

This is a must-have. Please incorporate.

Just to echo many other sentiments, this is a deal breaker for many exec summary type tables. Its not difficult to code in I imagine and will make a huge difference....

We are trying to migrate reports from Excel and Tableau, this feature is really needed.
