How to Remove the "Abc" text in a Tableau Worksheet

When using Tableau, you might occasionally create a worksheet that uses dimensions only. Imagine you created a worksheet displaying an organizational hierarchy that looks like this:

Everything looks nice except the “Abc” text placeholders in the rightmost column. It is there in case you want to add a value after those names. However, it isn’t easy to toggle off.

The simplest way requires three steps.

First, edit the Color section of the Marks Card and set Opacity to 0%. This makes the text completely see through.

Second, grab the far right side of the worksheet and drag the edge of the worksheet as far to the left as possible.
