    Tableau Desktop to Server :: Controlling the Size of Custom Shapes

    Joseph Bertram

      Hi everyone,


      I've been seeing some erratic changes to custom shapes once they are migrated to server. I've added the shapes into a local workbook and used the size pill to find a desired look and feel of my custom images.


      Once I publish to Tableau server, the image becomes distorted, almost like we have zoomed in on the center of the image.  It's really confusing that the custom shapes do not stay formatted the way they are presented in the Desktop tool, once they are published to server.


      But in my testing, the "Image" objects in a Dashboard tab do maintain their formatting.  It's just the custom shapes that seem to be misbehaving.


      Does anyone know why this happens? Is there a way to avoid it or have better control over how items are being displayed.
