Header Vs Title In Power BI Slicers

Callum Green notes the trade-offs between using a Header versus a Title in a Power BI slicer visual:

o   Header can have an Outline, which includes the ability to underline text.

o   Header is constrained to displaying the name of the attribute (“Product Category Name”), whereas a Title can be customised (“Select Category”).  You can rename your source data attribute to get around this, however.

o   Title enables you align the text, but this is not possible with a Header.

o   Header contains the “Clear Selection” option.

It’s not usually great to have both, but there are definitely trade-offs.
