When a text item is highlighted in a published workbook viewed via web browser, the text displays as black instead of white, reducing legibility against the blue highlight color. 


  • Tableau Server 10.0.0
  • Tableau Public 10.0.0


As a workaround on Tableau Server, adding ?:render=false to the end of the URL will allow the dashboard to render the text in white, improving legibility against the blue highlight color. This workaround is not available on Tableau Public.


This behavior is related to a known issue that is currently under investigation with issue ID 557906.
