    Format long column titles for heatmap

    Katrin EFFER

      Dear all,


      I am a (complete) beginner with Tableau and am working on a Dashboard that illustrâtes the evolution of Freedom in the world.

      At the Bottom right I have a heatmap with the precise Reasons for why Freedom has decreased in selected countries.


      Since the titles of the columns are very long, they are difficult to read and I need to improve legibility.

      I tried to put separating lines between each column (only applied to the header line, but not the entire grid), but I have not succeeded. Does anyone know how to do that?


      Any other ideas for improving the legibility of the titles? I dont want to switch the columns and rows since in the stacked bar chart to the left the country names are also on row level.


      Thanks a lot in advance!
