How to highlight one of multiple lines in a view.


Tableau Desktop


Using the Superstore Sample data, in a view in that contains MONTH([Ship Date]) on Rows or Columns, and YEAR([Ship Date]) on Color, the following steps will make only the line for 2017 bolder/wider:
  1. Create a calculated field: 
    YEAR([Ship Date]) = 2017
  2. Drag the calculated field onto "Size" on the Marks card and adjust the size as necessary.

Additional Information

You may have to adjust the view resolution (fit as "Entire view" for example) to show the details.
