How To Discover Undocumented Theme Settings in Power BI Desktop

The corporate design

I work for a company which has its own corporate design. There are templates for Word, PowerPoint, newsletters, and so on. But we didn’t have an official one for reports in Power BI.

Tools on the internet

The best place to start is the Report Theme Generator v3. You can create a color palette. You can also define global settings for all visuals and many custom settings for standard visuals. Unfortunately, the generator misses some settings. Maybe because the last version dates back to January 22nd, 2018.

{
"legend": {
"show": {
"type": [
"bool"
],
"displayName": [
"Show"
]
},
"position": {
"type": [
"enumeration"
],
"displayName": [
"Position"
],
"description": [
"Select the location for the legend"
]
}
}
}
{
"legend": [
{
"show": true,
"position": "Left"
}
]
}

The undocumented properties

As I have already written, there are some properties which aren’t documented but can be set in the Power BI Desktop. One of them is the lineWeight of an icon.
