To help resolve this issue, follow the steps below.
- Place only the absolute necessary dimensions on the Rows or Columns shelf.
- Drag any remaining dimensions to Detail on the Marks Card.
CauseTableau shows a horizontal scroll bar for measures, but not for dimensions. When only dimensions are included on either the Columns or Rows shelf, the lower horizontal scroll bar will not display. Dimensions are treated as headers for measure aggregations and do not generate a horizontal scroll bar when they exceed the width of the view.
- As an alternative, you can drag dimensions to Detail. When you drag dimensions to Detail, they will appear in the marks' tooltip. Tooltips can be formatted and customized to contain multiple dimensions in any order desired.
- If you would like to show your support for adding a horizontal scroll bar in a future release of Tableau, vote for this feature on the Ideas page: Horizontal Scroll Bar on Tables.
