Resolved Issues

Issue ID Description

In Tableau Desktop, when you edited a connection to Google BigQuery that you had already saved, you couldn't change to a different data set.


In Tableau Desktop, context filters were removed from context when references were replaced in fields that the filters were based on.


In certain workbooks, when you used MS Analysis Services named sets as top or bottom filters, an Analysis Services database error sometimes occurred when you loaded the workbook.


When Tableau Desktop was running on a system with an Intel HD Graphics 5500 series chipset, small white dots sometimes appeared on bar marks .


On a Mac, opening a workbook connected to MS SQL Server using manually specified AD credentials sometimes locked the user account out of MS SQL Server.


In Tableau Desktop, sometimes sheet summary card labels were missing. Resizing the Tableau Desktop window and/or the summary card often corrected the issue.


In Tableau Desktop, percentages based on table calculations did not compute correctly and, in some cases, did not add up to 100 percent.


In Tableau Desktop, when you used certain parameter-based calculated fields, viewing underlying data sometimes resulted in a function call error.


After an extract was refreshed and a workbook was saved, old data would sometimes be shown when the workbook was reopened.


In Tableau Desktop, some latitude and longitude data produced a map view that was too zoomed-in to be useful.


After upgrading to Mac OS X El Capitan (10.11) it was no longer possible to connect to an SSL-enabled PostgreSQL database from Tableau Desktop. This was because the PostgreSQL library built into Mac OS X El Capitan was not compiled with SSL.


In Tableau Desktop, when working on a dashboard with quick filters that belonged to different sheets, sometimes interacting with a quick filter changed the wrong sheet.


In Tableau Desktop, printing to PDF with "Repeat headers and legends on each page" off and with a horizontally centered layout resulted in an internal error.
