Click and Drag to Create Duplicates in Tableau
We at XeoMatrix have gathered a few tips & tricks that can make your Tableau development experience even more efficient. Today’s topic is: Click and Drag to Create Duplicates.
To easily create a duplicate image, icon, chart, or graph in your Tableau worksheet, you can use the control, click, and drag shortcut. We’ve created an example donut chart below to show you the steps.
First, press the control key on your keyboard. Next, while pressing the control key, click on the item in your dashboard that you want to duplicate, as shown below.
Lastly, while still holding the control key, drag your selection into the label field above it.
You should then see a duplicate item in the worksheet shelf.
This quick tip is handy for duplicating items in the same worksheet without recreating them from scratch.
