Issue

The font used in workbooks published on Tableau Server does not match the size of the font when the same workbook is opened in Tableau Desktop. Additionnally, the settings of the browser are set to default and the page size is at 100%.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Tableau Server
  • Windows

Resolution

  1. In Windows, open the Control Panel menu.
  2. Click Display.
  3. Change the size to "100%".

Cause

The Display settings will make the text in applications running in Windows, including Tableau Desktop, appear larger than the actual size. The default browser font will reflect the font size in Windows when the Display is set to 100%.
