Issue

Tooltips are being cut off on right-hand side in a visualization published to Tableau Public and in embedded Tableau Server views when the dashboard width is 742 pixels or narrower.

Environment

  • Tableau Public
  • Embedded Tableau Server views

Resolution

Workaround 1:

Use carriage returns in the tooltip text to force a new line of text which will result in a narrower tooltip window.

Workaround 2:

In the dashboard, increase the overall dashboard width to 743 pixels or more and add empty containers where needed.

Cause

The ability to dynamically change the width of a tooltip to fit within an embedded iframe is currently not built into the product.

Additional Information

In embedded Tableau Server views, if the tooltip width exceeds the overall width of the dashboard, a scrollbar will appear at the bottom of the view so the user can scroll to read the text in the tooltip. The scrollbars do not appear in Tableau Public views.
