    Line Clipping in Tableau

      Does Tableau do line clipping?

          Hi Jre,

           

          You could zoom into the desired area. Right click on the view and select Show Zoom Controls. If you don't want to see a specific part of the line you could write a calculated field that will make those parts of the line null.

           

          Hope this helps!

            Hi,

             

            Unfortunately, because I don't have all the data points, Tableau ignores the values that are filtered out.

             

            This is an example of what I'd like to happen when I drill down down (i.e filter from one viz to another).

            This is what happens currently:

            So, because I only technically have one point on the drill down, it is not drawing a line between the points outside of the second viz, which I would like it to do.

             

            Any suggestions?

              Ah, I think I understand, you're using a filter action? Essentially, you're only selecting one data point then, thus only one is appearing on the second sheet. I can't think of a way around this. Are you able to post a packaged workbook (twbx file)?
