If you performed an action on a dashboard (select an item for example), then went to another dashboard, you could not clear the action when you returned to the original dashboard.

131651

After using the clipboard from another application, copying data to the clipboard caused Tableau Desktop to unexpectedly close.

129875

When you entered text in a horizontal container on a dashboard and cleared the Fixed width option, saving the workbook did not save the width and the Fixed width option was re-selected when you opened the workbook again.

127681

Printing or printing to PDF from a Mac did not properly fit A4-sized dashboards on A4 paper.

127462

Adjusting how totals are calculated (example: selecting a visible field, clicking Total Using > Average) a "Cannot blend the secondary data source because one or more fields use the / function, which cannot be computed locally" error appeared.

When renaming a workbook tab, you could not use the mouse to select some of the existing text.

128449

When you used the Server > Open Workbook option in Tableau Desktop and selected Find By Project, the project list was empty.

125717

On the Extract Data screen, when you selected Incremental refresh, an "All rows will be added" message was displayed rather than a message telling you how many rows would be added.

124799

Extracts that were configured for incremental updates were causing a "Tableau data engine error: 8: The handle is invalid. - PC_NamedPipe : : Send (WriteFile)" error, while a full refresh would complete successfully.

124199

If you selected a page orientation of Landscape when printing a worksheet or dashboard, this setting was ignored and the output was printed in portrait mode.

124060

Pasting a list that was copied from Excel into a quick filter custom list on the Mac would result in the list getting concatenated as a single string rather than as the original list.

132090

When you manually set the start, end and center values of a diverging color palette and some data points were outside the range, data points would show up as black on a view.

129564

When connected to a multidimensional (cube) data source, performance was slow when dragging a hierarchical dimension to the view.

129522

In Tableau Desktop, joining tables in Excel or text files with an inner join could result in dropped rows and changing the join to a left join would make the missing rows reappear.

129013

Connecting to workbook with a connection to a stored procedure on the Mac caused the error: “[Simba][SqlServerODBC](60) Response error: Invalid object name ‘#tmp’.,. Unable to connect to the server ‘’.

126087

In a workbook that contains a story, tooltip edits in a worksheet were not reflected in the story point until you refreshed the story point.

125495

When you join tables that have duplicated column names, Tableau Desktop generates an alternate name for the duplicate. Creating an extract that uses the duplicate column could result in the alternate name being reverted to the original name and made unique by adding a 1 (version and version1, for example). This could cause errors in calculations if the alternate name was referenced.
