Some header labels are missing when a bar chart is placed on dashboard, even though they appear in the worksheet itself.


  • Tableau Desktop


To troubleshoot this issue, please try the following options:

Option 1: Change the fit setting for the layout container of the bar chart on the dashboard

  1. On the dashboard, click on any white space on the bar chart and look for the option buttons that would appear on the top left or right of the bar chart's layout container.
  2. Click the drop-down menu for More Options > Fit, and select Fit Height.

Option 2: Rotate the header labels

On the dashboard, right-click any header label on the affected axis of the bar chart, and select Rotate Label.

Option 3: Filter the data so that only the most important marks remain

There is insufficient room on the dashboard for header labels to be rendered.
