Here’s a small undocumented feature I found out when playing around with Power BI. You can change the width of the bars on your bar charts by changing the Inner padding of your X-axis. This option is only available when you have a catagorical axis, selecting a continuous scale disables the option of setting the inner padding from the view. However, the option is still functioning!

If you have a continuous scale, just change it to categorical, change the inner padding and change the axis back to continuous. The result will be that your bar width has changed, even with the continuous scale.
