Just to make sure, you are getting the pad view instead of the expected desktop view on a desktop or laptop computer? or the machine hosting Tableau server?
I've tried publishing it and i get the expected behavior of desktop view on Tableau server on my PC.
iam getting the pad view instead of the expected desktop view on a desktop or laptop computer. thanks
I believe this is a known issue, see Known Issues | Tableau Software item 537756. If you use the share link url and use it it will show the right desktop view.
Hopefully this gets fixed in 10.0.1 soon.
Great find Arnold!
I got answer from Jeaha (via email list: customer solutions hotline):
According to my recent observation, device specific layout is not dependent on the platform (desktop, tablet, or phone) you are viewing from. Only the size of current viewport(browser window) determined which device specific layout is displayed. I tested with various resizing of chrome browser on my laptop and concluded like that.
It means that you will see desktop layout if you resize your viewport large enough. You might have to change your screen resolution first to make the web browser big enough. I could see desktop layout only when I set screen resolution to full HD (1920*1080) on my laptop if my memory serves me right.
You can also see phone layout on desktop browser if you resize your browser small enough. Don't forget to press F5 (or command+R) and refresh.
Hope it helps and wish anyone from dev can provide background of this behavior.
Thanks Jeaha, he really answered my question.
