I have exactly the same issue since the Tableau 2018.3 version.
However, I have noticed that the exporting error only occurs if I work with custom shape files in Tableau.
If I use the built-in shape files of Tableau then I can get a good .emf export. Problem with the built-in solution is in my case that they are not up-to-date on the municipality level in the Netherlands (I have 2018 municipalities and Tableau uses municipality shapes from an earlier year).
I really hope that they will fix this issue soon. Did you already found a solution?
Hi Jesse - thanks for your feedback on this issue. I don't work with custom shapes and I haven't touched the built-in shap files.
I haven't found a solution yet and at this point I'm struggling to even figure out what I could try out...
I guess I'll work with PNGs until the next update, and hope it gets fixed!
Thanx for your input, but this is a different issue.
In the meantime I have found a partial solution, thanks to Jeroen Jacobs:
You can make an export to PDF and then the map is correct and of high quality.
And a PDF file can be easily converted to emf format using online tools. Unfortunately in my case the map looks fine but the legend is blurry when using this workaround.
Thus, I really hop this issue will be fixed in the next version of Tableau Desktop.
Thanks Jesse. Glad to hear you found somewhat of a workaround.
I was curious what your experience is with exporting to PowerPoint?
