Issue

After publishing a view from Tableau Desktop to Tableau Server, the floating text boxes move, which creates a different alignment of boxes.

Environment

Tableau Server 

Resolution

Try the following workarounds: 
  1. Make dashboard objects tiled instead of floating
  2. Or, when setting the dashboard sizing, ensure it is set on Fixed
  3. Or, edit your dashboard directly from Tableau Server

Cause

Floating objects do not display consistently across screens with different resolutions.
