User Voice Picks
The new Modelling View was delivered in Nov 2018 and is fabulous. There is already a button to select all measures in a table – great. I would like to then move all the selected measures to another table, either by drag and drop or by selecting the home table in the properties list (just like you can do for formatting).
Having a dark mode especially on the creator UI when putting things together would be helpful, similar to other MSFT apps (Azure, Office 2016, etc).
