    Removing labels in the background?

    Elizabeth Brown

      I have a map in Tableau that's set to display an individual state after that state is selected in a filter. When selected, the label for that state appears, and the default label from the map is covered up. That's usually fine, but the one label for "United States" is getting in the way of a couple of states near it. I'd like to turn off the label for "United States" at least and I'm not sure how - I've already removed it from the data using a filter, I'm not sure what else to do.

       

      It's not a major issue, but it's pretty annoying and I'd like to know if it can be turned off. This is what it looks like:
