Issue

After publishing to Tableau Public or Tableau Server, the legends and caption texts are missing from the Dashboard. 

Environment

  • Tableau Public 10.0.0
  • Windows 10
  • Excel
  • Tableau Server 10.0.0

Resolution

Ensure that the Device Layout is set to the Default before publishing. For example, if the Dashboard is set to be displayed on a "Tablet", then ensure to select "Default" in the Layout - Tablet section.  

Cause

In Tableau Desktop, custom Dashboard Device Layouts can be created. The various layouts will trim the view to allow it to fit in the desired size layout.
