Highlighting Scatter Charts In Power BI

Jason Thomas has a great post showing how to implement highlighting of scatter/bubble charts in Power BI:

That said, there is one feature from my previous blog that was not implemented in Power BI – highlighting scatter/bubble charts. In Power BI, the scatter charts are not considered as area charts and hence you can only filter them and not highlight. This feature is useful when you have a lot of data points in your scatter chart and you want to see where a particular data point is with respect to the other data points. That said, you can make use of some nifty DAX and replicate the same behavior.

There are several steps to the process so it’s not point-and-click easy, but Jason has a nice walkthrough showing how to set it up.
