    Can't Stop Tableau from nesting Dimensions

      I'm having a lot of trouble stopping Tableau from nesting dimensions in worksheets I'm trying to build.  I'm trying to build a large crosstab sheet, but instead of nesting the dimensions, I want the dimensions stacked as separate blocks. For example, if I put the fields "Category" and "Region" in a row, it nests Category within Region.  I would rather have Category and region be separate, un-nested blocks.

      For example, this is what I want my crosstabs to look like:

      But this is how Tableau formats it through nesting:

      Can anyone help me solve this problem?
