    Tableau 10 default font size too big for labels?

    Andrew Clapson

      Hey all,

       

      Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this: when using the Default theme/format, the standard Label font size (Tableau Book, 9pt) doesn't give quite enough space for the label on each bar to render on a very basic standard bar chart (see below screenshot of the Superstore workbook)

       

      I know I can check the 'Overlap' option to allow the sizes to work, but it seems like a bit of a strange choice for a default text size to me. Most of the time I want labels to appear for all bars in a Standard view, and in all other cases I'll customize them for particular callouts or ToolTip labels.

       

      Am I missing something here?
