We're currently planning a suite of improvements to the Card visual, including alignment options for Card content.

RE: No alignment options available in card visual.

Hello Microsoft!

How many MORE votes do you need to implement this feature? I assume its an 1 to 2 hours of effort for a junior developer to implement a fix!

Yes "Fix", because its the most basic feature someone would expect from such a visual. Such a pain to align text to match the Center alignment of the card or building information Tooltips with this!

Christ how many votes does this need? So much basic formatting missing from Power BI, stop releasing advanced stuff for a month and do a QoL update with all the basic stuff that all other similar software has!

RE: No alignment options available in card visual.

It's also against my company's accessibility rules and style guide not to have this available. I now also have to do a bunch of extra work to get our corporate font to work in the Advance Card visual instead. I can't use multi-row card because it doesn't word wrap.

This is badly needed, alignment is very important for accounting team which is a main portion of report consumers

RE: No alignment options available in card visual.

This is needed badly for both the card visual and the multi-row card visual.

This would be awesome. FYI for those struggling with this, there's a marketplace visual, Advanced Card, that at least auto-centers the value.

RE: No alignment options available in card visual.

Alignment is needed in both card and multi row card. It simply makes reports look odd when table visuals are centre aligned and headline cards can only be left aligned. Also option to select number of columns rather than automatically jumping to 2 when it hits a certain length would be good

RE: No alignment options available in card visual.

Please, we need the text to be on the left or right, not just centered, there are calculated columns that vary in length and it is difficult to adjust once we have reports in production

In addition to what many have said about this as to why it's so inefficient, it's currently tagged as "Needs Votes". At the time of this writing there's 2247 votes for it. That makes it 21st on the ideas list. Come on MS... how many votes do you need? This is a no-brainer and a low-hanging fruit.
