After exporting from a sheet or a dashboard in Tableau Desktop, you notice that the alignment of mark labels appear slightly lower than they should. 

For example, 
  • In a scenario where horizontal bars with mark labels contains a higher mid-line of the bars than the mid-line of the text.
  • The text appears misaligned.

Option 1

Upgrade to Tableau Desktop 10.5.1, 10.4.4, 10.3.8, 10.2.10 or 10.1.14. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Desktop in Tableau Help.

Option 2

As a possible workaround, change the mark label font style to something other than "Tableau Book" - for example: Arial.
