Add the ability to control the size of the grid in Power BI.

It's great to have snap-to-grid functionality and gridlines in Power BI Desktop. However, I haven't used this feature much because the standard grid size is not useful for my particular reports. I need the ability to change the size of the grid to make it more/less dense depending on my scenario.

RE: Adjust grid size

Need to be able to reduce the size of the grid on a stacked visual. Takes up so much of the report page

Quite odd to have a grid we can't define. It would be so helpful, but I really the distance between grid lines really isn't helpful for developing refined layouts.

RE: Adjust grid size

Our layouters build their whole design on the idea of an abstract grid, for example 16 cols and 9 rows. So each dashboard element will cover one or more of these so defined tiles. That gives us a framework for a consistent layout throughout the pages. But I'm not able to reflect this within PowerBI by using the grid lines and the snap to grid functionality. At least a variety of useful grids to choose fom (like 16:9 for example) would help.

RE: Adjust grid size

At the very least, grid sizing should be consistent between different display sizes and resolutions.

Yes, we need this feature. Not useful in current state.
