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.

RE: Conditional Formatting for Text

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASEas others have said, we NEED bold, italic, etc as part of conditions. I'm about to present a project and I'm unable to bold some row headers and I'm going to be asked for that 'simple' change and my answer will be, 'sorry, not possible'. It looks bad on the product.

RE: Conditional Formatting for Text

really happy with this addition, thank youjust a thought though, I'm a big fan of the 'Fields Parameter' feature that was introduced recently, very helpful feature. Would you consider an enhancement of the string conditional formatting, just so it works with columns based on the Fields Parameter' value? It would be a fantastic addition to this I think. Thanks :)

RE: Conditional Formatting for Text

It is a bit frustrating sometimes to see this still not being added yet they take the time to add Augmented Reality Support for Dashboards when it feels like that feature would have a single digit percentage of utilisation (or lower) from the Power BI userbase. The functionality's in Excel, why is this still not being added to Power BI?

RE: Conditional Formatting for Text

Would also love to have bold, italic, underline, etc options for specific column. (Or specific row if using a matrix visual). Not necessarily conditional formatting. But speaking of conditional formatting, I sometimes want to have conditional formatting across several columns, not just one. If I have 5 different expense streams in a visual, I'd love to be able to color scale the whole values area.
