It would be great to conditional format a table and/or a matrix based on the cell text, not only numbers

This month we added the ability to format text fields based off a numeric field: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#conditionalFormatting We also are planning on adding a feature that will let you format your text based on comparisons. I'll update this idea based on our progress on that feature.

Great! Cant wait! Lets just have the option to say IF State = 'Washington' Color it 'Green' IF State = 'Arizona' then color the text cell Orange.

RE: Conditional Formatting for Text

Unfortunately, this new ability doesn't solve the problem as in order to get text formatting I would have to create a bogus measure and have that show up in the table in order to get formatting on the important item which is text.

A basic feature is to be able to compare vs. a measures or table values, not just hardcoded values on the rule.
