    Is there a way to only display a label if the entire label fits?

    John Burton

      I created a tree map with hundreds of individual rectangles and labels for each rectangle.  In some cases the rectangle is large enough to fit the entire label.  However, in many cases the label is too big for the rectangle.  In this case I would prefer that Tableau display no label.  A truncated label just looks silly.  I know I can suppress labels individually but this would be very time-consuming because there are so many rectangles.

       

      Does anyone know a way of displaying labels selectively only if the entire label fits the space.  The attached illustrates my problem.

       

      Thanks!
