RE: No alignment options available in card visual.

Come on Microsoft this is a joke. Basic features a users runs into within a day of using your tool are missing! 

Where is the single date picker? Had to follow some crazy work around: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhWtU0DynCk

Now I find I can't even left align what is basically just a text box. So frustrating.

This is basic functionality that should require low developer effort to implement.

This is a so basic option, I cannot understand why it's not already implemented. This is needed for card and multicard visuals

Also, allow us to move the name above, below, or even with the data.
Placing elements on same line allows us to save a lot of space: Category: Value is much nicer.
Aligning both items independently in a grid-style layout would be beneficial.

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!

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
