In the future, you can just click the "Print Screen" (or PrtScn as it is often labeled) key on your keyboard to take a snapshot of your screen, paste it into an image file out of that and post (when you press PrtScn, your machine takes a "copy" of your screen, and although you won't see anything happen, you can then paste that screenshot into a photo editing software or Paint). It'll look better than a digital photo from a camera.
As Johan suggested, you may want to vote on the idea he listed because Tableau doesn't do "scrolling down" in these scenarios.
You can create multiple sheets to create a columnar affect, place them side by side, and view it that way. Or, leave it as is, and create a separate sheet, and use an Action to link to that sheet. Something like "Go to Page 2" could be placed on the dashboard, and that would link to the 2nd page.
As Johan was alluding to, Tableau doesn't have a scrollable text area (yet) so you have to use a work around.
Here's another workaround:
- Increase the height of your dashboard in order to fit more text (to say 1500px)
- In tableau desktop you get vertical scrollbars
- In tableau server you get vertical scrollbars on the browser
- Use a web control and host the content on a web server (or blog site.)
Hope this helps!
