When creating a string of unicode characters all above U+10000, then the last mark will render as a ? in a diamond in the mark on the view.


  • Tableau Desktop 2019.1.0-2019.1.6 and 2019.2.0-2019.2.2
  • Tableau Server 2019.1.0-2019.1.6 and 2019.2.0-2019.2.2


Option 1

Upgrade to Tableau Desktop or Tableau Server 2019.1.7, 2019.2.3 or later

Option 2

If upgrading is not an option, then including a unicode character below U+10000 in the string will resolve the issue. For example, adding Braille Pattern Blank, which renders as white space on most computers, to the end of the string.
