Device Layout Preview Frame Persists on Dashboard

IssueWhen creating a device layout, then the preview frame is still present.
When you need to view the workbook in Tableau Desktop or Tableau Reader, then the device layout preview frame is confusing.
- Tableau Desktop
- Tableau Reader
- Click Device Preview.
- Pick a Device type.
- Click Add Desktop Layout.
- In the left-pane, click the Device Preview button to turn it off.
- The device layout that was just added will automatically be selected in the list. Click on Default to select the Default layout.
- Save the workbook with the Default layout selected.
CauseThere is a difference between previewing a layout and adding a layout. We can add a layout without previewing it, which means Tableau Server will provide users on a particular device the specified layout, but the preview frame will not show.
