This has happened to me when I have a filter set (usually in a different worksheet) that is applied to the blank worksheet (whether it should be or not). Or a dashboard action that is applied and set to "Exclude all values" when clearing the selection. Could either of these possibly be the problem?
i am creating a sheet from scratch, with name given to it by Tableau. so it wont exist in any actions. when i drag the calculated field "return", it only brings in 1 filter "all using related datasource" which is what ALL sheets use
so i drag it to details, change it to shapes, select arrow, that is it. i can see it, if i go to dashboard, i can hover and see it, then i drag it in and nothing....the dashboard it filled with sheets that use this filter, if i change the filter, i see everything change, so the filter is not the issue
am i missing something? also, why is it that when i use it, then return to sheet, is has been "highlighted" which i cantremove?
