When using a dual axis, the axes are not properly synchronizing when no value is input into a parameter that the axis relies on.


  • Tableau Desktop 10.0.0
  • Windows 7
  • Tableau Data Engine


  1. Right click the second axis, and select Edit Axis...
  2. Keep Synchronize dual axes selected
  3. As the range is set to Automatic, take note of the start and end values.
  4. Change the range to Fixed and input the values from the 'Automatic' setting.
  5. Click Apply, and OK.



When there is no value input, the axis does not synchronize with the other axis.
