For this, you can start avoiding such scenarios by following some best practices:
1. Use containers even for numbers to be displayed on your dashboard :
keeping every small object in containers and making it fit dynamic will always make the numbers or any object fit as per the screen resolution in which the dashboard is getting accessed.
2. you can set your dashboard layout to be 1200*900 which is considered to be standard and best fit resolution for display and pdf downloads from server.
3. For better fonts you can use the new Tableau Fonts i.e. Tableau Bold , Tableau Medium etc which are designed newly so that the fonts should not get blur in any zoom in zoom out of the screen.
These are few pointers which I have tried and tested.
Hope this Helps!
Thanks so much, I'll give these a try. I don't know if this is a topic for a new thread, but if things are "floating" is there any way to generally know where they will go when a dashboard is expanded if its size is "automatic"? It seems to generally resize as I would like, but it also seems a bit arbitrary, so I don't know if there is a rule of thumb for what is "pinned", ie. is the rightmost item always pinned to that side and grows from there if that makes sense?

For floating objects you can't predict depending on which resolution the end users are using or in which they access the dashbaord.It can be a laptop, desktop, ipad anything and to make the best out of any dashboard try not to use much of floating objects as you will never know where it will be placed after opening the dashbaord in any resolution.
Basically you can't say how and in what way the dashboard will expand for any resolution and were the objects will move , you just have to be sure that everything should be in place and readable so that Users are happy with the experience!
Hope that makes sense!
