Unable to set Padding or Margin in Sheet
When shading is set to a non default color (dark color) in a sheet and the sheet is published or used in embedded view, the view shows 4 px white border/margin/padding.


  • Tableau Server 2020.3.0


As workaround add the sheet to dashboard and use one of the following options:

Option 1 : Set desired shading color for dashboard that will be used for sheet’s border color.
Option 2:  Set Sheet’s Outer Padding to 0 in the dashboard (Layout).  By default this value is set to 4.


The ability to set or modify padding or margin in Sheet is not currently been built into the product.
