current version of the report builder can only be published by premium capacity
accounts. It would be awesome to include this feature for pro users as well and
allow us to add paginated reports to our apps we develop. We have a flat
organizational structure and tend to use power BI for clients. We all have pro
licenses but there is not much sense to buy premium capacity at this time.
However, having this feature would be a huge benefit to everyone using power bi
under pro accounts.

important Power BI dates over the next few months.
Currently, once you
connect to a Power BI Service/Online Dataset you cannot add additional data
sources. We have several datasets we’d like to put in the same report, but
can’t because they are over the 1GB limit on size. If we could live-connect to
them all in Power BI Desktop this would help.
When I add an image to Power BI Desktop, the default setting is that
the Aspect Ratio is not locked. This makes the process of scaling the image to
a suitable size behave in an inconsistent way compared to (say) PowerPoint. If
you turn on “lock aspect ratio”, then the image scales correctly and
consistently with other office applications.
Most images should be scaled with a locked aspect ratio.
