When viewing a workbook on Tableau Online that uses crosstabs, some or all of the text or images in the crosstab is missing or blank.


  • Tableau Online


Use one of the following workarounds: 

Option 1

  • Increase the dashboard size for height by around 100 pixels

Option 2

  • Change the font in the workbook (Format > Workbook...) to a supported font other than Tableau (Bold, Book, Light, Medium, Regular, Semibold)
    • Supported fonts that may mitigate the issue are Arial, Calibri, Courier New, Georgia, Meiryo UI, Times New Roman, Trebuchet MS, and Verdana

Option 3

  • Change the font size to a smaller size

NOTE: Depending on your view, some of these workarounds may resolve your issue, while others may not.
