Issue

When setting an axis range to 'Fixed', a pin icon appears next to the measure name to notify users that the axis is fixed. The ability to hide or remove that pin icon is not currently built in the product.

 

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop

Resolution

The following workaround can be used to avoid displaying the pin:
  1. The pin is tied to the measure header. Click "Edit Axis" and clear the title.
  2. Create a dummy field containing your measure name as a string, for example: "Sales".
  3. Place your dummy field in the view and use the formatting option to place the axis label as desired

Cause

The ability to hide or remove the pin icon is not currently built in the product.
