    Dashboard "Blanks" have inconsistent behavior

    Cameron Matthews

      Just wanted to bring this minor issue to peoples' attention/for reference... inserting a floating "Blank" on a dashboard displays as a white object in Desktop, but when published to the web (i.e. Tableau Public) it becomes transparent.

       

      If you are trying to use Blanks for formatting, a workaround is to create a white image file larger than the space you will need and insert it into the dashboard as an Image rather than a Blank. Be sure to uncheck "Fit Image" on the right-click menu for the image so it fills the Image space entirely.

       

      Here's the published version:
