Connecting charts and maps by their tab names

If you have several charts/maps in your project, you can link them together by their tab names to make it easier for your viewers to navigate your project. There are two ways to do this:

  • When adding a hyperlink to a specific tab, you can check the box next to Link all project charts by tab name in the pop-up window.
  • Go to the settings panel on the right (without any object selected on the canvas), expand the Viewer experience tab, and check the box next to Link charts by tab name.

Hiding the tabs of charts/maps

You might also want to hide the tabs of your charts and maps if you have many of them and if you've added links to the tabs.

  1. Select a chart or map by clicking on it.
  2. Click on the Chart properties (or Map properties) tab in the settings panel on the right.
  3. Toggle on the Hide tabs option.
