[TABLEAU] Annotations


Use annotations to call attention to specific points, marks, and areas of the view, and to add information that makes the view more understandable. Annotations can be resized, repositioned, and formatted.

Add an Annotation

Right-click a mark, point, or area that you want to annotate. On the context menu, select Annotate, and then select the type of annotation you want to add.

In the Edit Annotation dialog box, type and format the annotation text, and then click OK.

The annotation appears in the view.


Resize and Reposition the Annotation

 Click and drag the annotation to a new location.

Use the resize handles to resize both the annotation and the arrow line.

 Format the Annotation

 To format the annotation box or arrow line,  right-click it and select Format. The Format window opens.


To reformat the text of the annotation, double-click it. The Edit Annotation dialog box opens.
