Issue

 In Tableau Server, when viewing a dashboard text object that contains long text, the text gets cut off abruptly without ellipses, unlike Tableau Desktop which displays ellipses. 

Environment

  • Tableau Server 

Resolution

To workaround this behavior, please consider resizing your dashboard Text Object to better fit longer text. 

 

Cause

This behavior is currently limited by design.
