Hello all, I'm Seth, and I am a frequenter of the forums but this is my first official post.
I'd like to say first that I appreciate the feedback of this active community. So thanks everyone!
What I'm doing
When designing my dashboards for my company, I often use floating layout containers (horizontal mostly) so that I can place borders around objects and precisely position them to keep the dashboard clean.
Some of my sheets are in these containers (the ones with borders) and some are not (the green and blue squares).
I have spaced all of my objects 6 units apart. As you can see below in Tableau Desktop, everything is equally spaced. I think it looks decent.
What I'm experiencing (the problem)
When I publish my dashboard to Tableau Server, the spacing between my objects messes up and no longer looks like it did in Tableau Desktop.
It appears that the spacing between normal objects is fine such as my sheets not in containers. However, it seems that the layout containers are not spaced correctly anymore.
Also, the quick filters and parameters do not display properly either and seem to have shifted up on the dashboard.
What I know (or have done)
I have crawled the forums and have Googled tirelessly looking for solutions before posting.
I currently running Tableau Desktop and Server 9.0.1.
I have been hounding our Tableau admin team to upgrade us, feeling that one of the 20 something revisions/updates could resolve this.
This issue is:
- occurring for me on Windows 7, 8.1, and 10 and happens on both Google Chrome and Internet Explorer 11.
- not specific to this workbook and appears across all of my workbooks with any of my Data Sources.
- consistent regardless of the display resolution. I have looked on laptops, monitors and a plethora of conference room screens.
- occurs on both our development and production Tableau Servers.
My Experience (I don't know all that much so I'm sure I'm missing something that's already known)
Tableau Desktop 9 for only 10 months.
Tableau Fundamentals, Advanced, and Visual Analytics Courses.
Tableau Conference 2015
Thank you everyone for looking at this. I appreciate it!
