Character Missing in Action Filter Menu Link in Tooltip

Issue

When the name for a menu Action Filter is long enough to break into multiple lines, then sometimes the link in the tooltip cuts off the first character of the second line.

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

As a possible workaround, add another character in front of the character that disappears.
  • For example, if the "t" in two disappears from the below menu link:
    • This is a really long link that breaks onto two lines
  • Then rename the menu Action Filter to the following:
    • This is a really long link that breaks onto _two lines

Cause
