    Auto fit columns

    Austen Robinson

      New to Tableau.  Is there a way to auto fit your data in columns in Tableau?  Tried the double arrow and it only makes it worse.

          Hello Austen,


          I presume your view has a number of fields on the Rows shelf and one or more of the fields contains data the exceeds the size of the view.  This can be 'fixed' by dragging the column manually from the right side for that specific column. It can be challenging to get the left/right cursor to appear but if you highlight over the line to the right of the column carefully, it should appear. 


          If you like there is also an idea covering this topic here: https://community.tableau.com/ideas/1362   The "Fit to Content" button being what I think you are looking for.

          Thank you
