Are you finding these issues occurring with updated visualizations made in previous versions of Tableau or with new dashboards? In addition, could you confirm that you are running the Windows version of Tableau? I assume so based on the Ctrl-Z issue but confirming is helpful.
I suggest opening a ticket with Tableau Support as well so that we can verify each of the reported issues against known/reported issues and conditions. Known Issues | Tableau Software is the home of the known and verified issues with Developement supplied workarounds/suggestions.
I hope that helps
Well the good news is, If I open a brand new tableau instance and copy my dashboard over everything works even ctrl-Z.
So the real issue is having a workbook that contains dashboards from a previous version of tableau and saving it to 10.5
To confirm, I'm running Tableau 10.5 - 64Bit
Windows 10 Enterprise 64bit
Edit* When I copy and paste my dashboard into a new Tableau Book everything works until I save and close Tableau. When I reopen the workbook my dashboard bugs out again.
Hey Scott, What version did you upgrade from?
Same issue - Cannot create a dashboard. The Tableau server is still on 10.3 while the desktop is 10.5.1 version. Any possible solutions?
We just upgraded to 10.5.2 and are having these same issues. We upgraded from 10.2. Same buggy issues are happing when working with upgraded or newly created workbooks.
I was having a very similar issue as well. I had a workbook that I had created in 10.1 and when trying to edit in 10.5 I was having issues like ctrl-z wasn't working, certain edits wouldn't work properly, the cursor would get stuck as the up down error, and I couldn't move some objects in the dashboard. In searching for other issues, I came across the idea of opening Tableau using the 'Run as administrator' option, and it fixed all of the issues I was having with the dashboard.
