Variety in Power BI Bar Chart Designs

Kurt Buhler builds a series of charts from the Power BI bar chart visual:

These are only a few examples; there are many more. Knowing how to create these different bar chart variants is important to address these use-cases. While many of these visuals can be created custom in Deneb or from SVGs, you can also create them in the core visuals. However, it’s important to know the limitations of the core visuals in Power BI, and when this “Macguyvering” of the core visual formatting settings goes too far.

Kurt gives us a template (in pbib format) and explains various options we have around customizing visuals, not just taking what’s built in.
