RE: No alignment options available in card visual.

This would be very beneficial for dynamic cards based on filters. Right now I have product name as a dynamic card at the top of my report which I have to constantly resize my visual due to the varying lengths of different product names. If I could align the text to the left side instead of the default center-align it would save a good chunk of time.

RE: No alignment options available in card visual.

Can you also add alignment in a multi row card visual aswell. That would be really useful.
Thanks

It is hard to imagine why alignment and font face (bold , italic, etc) is not available for the data label and it is available for the title in the Card visual.

In any case, please improve this visual by adding these formatting features to the data label, please.

This type of simple formatting feature should be included by default. It would greatly increase our use of Power BI.

RE: No alignment options available in card visual.

I have just created an invoice for a client. Using cards was the best way to layout single values that appear under my table of line items eg. Sub total, less marketing costs, grand total, Account number, account code. But the lack of alignment means it looks a bit second rate.

RE: No alignment options available in card visual.

Virtually no text format options at all for the card visual. Alignment would certainly be a start. My current reports have a company logo top-right, which means a centre-aligned card with the report title (which is driven by filters) looks funny as it's slightly off-centre.
