For example, a mark may represent the aggregated sales for all regions. Adding the Region field to the tooltip results in an asterisk because the mark represents more than one region.
Control the Appearance of Marks in the View
To avoid showing an asterisk, add the dimension to Detail on the Marks card or use it elsewhere in the view to ensure the marks are at the same level of detail. After you open the Edit Tooltip dialog box, there are several options that you can choose from to format the tooltips in your view and configure their behavior.
You can choose from the options below. The All Fields command on the Insert menu adds all field names and values that are used in the view to the tooltip for any mark in the view. Show tooltips: Tooltips are shown by default. If you prefer to hide automatic tooltips, clear the Show Tooltips check box. Responsive - Show tooltips instantly : Select this option to show tooltips instantly as you move the cursor over the marks in the view.
This is the default for all views. With this option, tooltips appear without command buttons. You must first click a mark in the view to see the command buttons. On Hover - Show tooltips on hover : Select this option to show tooltips only after you rest the cursor on a mark.
However, with this option, command buttons appear on the tooltip without any further action from you unless you specify otherwise in the Edit Tooltips dialog box. These buttons show both in Tableau Desktop and when the view is published to the web or viewed on a mobile device.
For more information about creating sets, see Create Sets. Select marks in a view from the tooltip. Select the Allow selection by category check box to be able to select marks in a view that have the same value by clicking on a discrete field in a tooltip. If this check box is selected, you can use this feature to select marks in a view in Tableau Desktop, when the view is published to the web or viewed on a mobile device.
If you have customized the tooltip, you can return to the automatic tooltip by clicking Tooltip on the Marks card and then clicking Reset in the Edit Tooltip dialog box. When you place a dimension on Shape on the Marks card, Tableau separates the marks according to the members in the dimension, and assigns a unique shape to each member. Tableau also displays a shape legend, which shows each member name and its associated shape.
When you place a measure on Shape on the Marks card, the measure is converted to a discrete measure. Shape-encoding data separates the marks in the same way as the Detail property does, and then provides additional information a shape for each mark. Shape is the default mark type when measures are the inner most fields for both the Rows shelf and the Columns shelf.
In the view below, the marks are separated into different shapes according to the members of the Customer Segment dimension. By default, ten unique shapes are used to encode dimensions. If you have more than 10 members, the shapes repeat. In addition to the default palette, you can choose from a variety of shape palettes, including filled shapes, arrows, and even weather symbols.
In the Edit Shape dialog box, select a member on the left and then select the new shape in the palette on the right.
Different Sizes, Colors and Shapes
You can also click Assign Palette to quickly assign the shapes to the members of the field. Note: Shape encodings are shared across multiple worksheets that use the same data source.
For example, if you define Furniture products to be represented by a square, they will automatically be squares in all other views in the workbook. You can add custom shapes to a workbook by copying shape image files to the Shapes folder in your Tableau Repository, which is located in your Documents folder. When you use custom shapes, they are saved with the workbook. That way the workbook can be shared with others. Create your shape image files. Each shape should be saved as its own file and can be in any of several image formats including bitmap. The name of the folder will be used as the name of the palette in Tableau.
In the example below, two new palettes are created: Maps and My Custom Shapes. In Tableau, click the drop-down arrow on the shape legend, and select Edit Shape. Select the new custom palette in the drop-down list. If you modified the shapes while Tableau was running, you may need to click Reload Shapes. You can either assign members shapes one at a time, or click Assign Palette to automatically assign the shapes to the members.

Note: You can return to the default palette by clicking the Reset button. However, you can click Reload Shapes in the Edit Shapes dialog box to use the ones in your repository instead. When you create custom shapes there are a few things that you can do to improve how your shapes look and function in the view. If you are creating your own shapes, we recommend following general guidelines for making icons or clip art.
Suggested size - Unless you plan on using Size to make the shapes really large, you should try to make your original shape size close to 32 pixels by 32 pixels. However, the original size depends on the range of sizes you want available in Tableau.
Shapes, Colors, and Sizes
You can resize the shapes in Tableau by clicking Size on the Marks card, or by using the cell size options on the Format menu. Adding color encoding - If you plan to also use Color to encode shapes, you should use a transparent background. Otherwise, the entire square of the image will be colored rather than just the symbol. When Tableau color encodes a symbol, the amount of transparency for each pixel won't be modified, so you can maintain smooth edges.
Make the size of the custom shape as close to the size of the image as possible. Extra transparent pixels around the edges of the image can negatively effect the hover or click behavior near the image, especially when custom shapes overlap each other. When the actual shape area is bigger than what is visible, it can make hovering and clicking the shape more difficult and less predictable for users. File formats - Tableau doesn't support symbols that are in the Enhanced Meta File format.

I've made this game available here , so the children in your care can enjoy it as much as I did - and also learn as much. Unfortunately, it's a bit hard to download plastic! But if you have a color printer, you can download and print a set of tiles here.

It's probably enough to print them onto paper or cardboard. If you can, print two copies, and paste one onto thick cardboard, so your child can learn thin versus thick as well as different colors, shapes and sizes. Laminating the tiles will make sure they last longer, but I don't know how easy it is to laminate thick cardboard! Skip to content. By Michael Hartley One of the best toys my mom ever gave me was a collection of plastic tiles of all diferent shapes, sizes and colors.
Some game suggestions : You could get the child to play the game I mentioned above, with the loops of string You could show the kid a tile, then ask him or her to find a tile which is similar. Once they find a tile, ask why it is similar.
