After publishing a view to Tableau Server 10.0, then the font in a floating color legend with a hidden title is oversized.


Tableau Server 


Option 1

Append render=true to the end of the workbook URL:
  • With the affected view open on Tableau Server, append the following parameter to the URL of the view: ?:render=true.
  • For example: http://localhost/views/BusinessDashboard/AreaSalesPerformance?:render=true

Option 2

Add the title back to the legend (the title can be empty).

Option 3

Use a tiled layout for the legend rather than a floating layout.
