save to tableau public online and then save as png or pdf
frnakly tableau is just horrible to work with for exports. i spend more time resizing fonts and components to account for the fact that what appears in the software does not appear in the export. parts of labels and so on disappear. a size that fits perfectly in the dashboard then just gets cut randomly from the export. literally hours wasted.
Do you have license to Tableau desktop? You can export from desktop and the quality is pretty high.
I have been using tableau public and have now downloaded the free trial of tableau desktop.
I still have the same problem. I have tried:
- exporting as .emf and bringing into paintbrush to save as tiff
- saving as pdf and then converting to tiff
the client has reason to point out the blurriness of the images. i can't justify paying a license for tableau unless images are razor sharp. is this a common problem? quite a few posts about this. please indicate whether i am doing something wrong or whether this is just a flaw in the software. if so i will have to find an alternative solution.
if I increase dashboard resolution to ridiculous sizes and then reduce in word this does not work either.
is tableau intended solely for web publishing? if so not much use to me
Hi Charles -
I have been using Tableau for the past 2 years and with every presentation that I need to incorporate charts from Tableau, I never encounter any situation with low resolutions. Here is the method that were used:
For worksheet Worksheet > Copy > Image
For dashboard Dashboard > Copy Image
One last question, how about using screen grab? Have you tried that before? If you are still having the issue, it might be computer specific.
