Issue

When using Tableau Desktop with a dual display setup, the text may overlap with itself in the calculation editor.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Dual or multiple display setup
  • Windows 10

Resolution

Ensure that both displays have the same DPI scaling configured:
  1. Right-click anywhere on your Windows desktop > Display settings.
  2. In the Display dialog, under 'Select and rearrange displays', select one of the displays, and scroll down to the 'Scale and layout' section to check the scaling setting (e.g. "150%").
  3. Select the other display, scroll down to the 'Scale and layout' section and select the same scaling setting as the first display.
  4. Sign out of Windows, and then sign back in.

Cause

The two displays have different DPI scaling settings.
