Issue

Scroll bars on views published to Tableau Server versions 2018.1 and later are very thin and have a light gray color when rendering in the browser.

Environment

  • Tableau Server 2018.1 - 2018.3
  • Chrome browser

Resolution

Possible workarounds are:

Workaround 1:
- Use a different browser such as IE11.

Workaround 2:
- Use 'zoom' feature within Chrome to make the scroll bar easier to see.
 

Cause

Currently, the scroll bar is by design and the rendering is the result of the browser and Tableau Server interactions. The ability to customize the scroll bar color and size is not built in to the product.
