    Trend line not showing

          I'd have to see the workbook to confirm, but I think it has something to do with your date field. It looks like you're using a month date part, but if that was the case then when you made it continuous it would show the "+" option. My guess is that Tableau can't view the time series as a legitimate continuous series. If you can share the workbook, I'd be happy to take a look.
