I meant what I said, and I said what I meant.
Does Tableau forget what I just told it? Or does it decide that I didn't really mean it? Either way, I meant what I said, and I said what I meant, so Tableau Should remember and not make me say it again.
What I want
In this case, I'm trying to extract a percentage of the source data, and I want to pull out 10% of it, so I invoke the Extract Data dialog and enter "10" into the "Top" input area, as shown on the left in the image below. However, I want 10 percent of the data, not 10 rows, so I pull down the pulldown, as shown by the arrow pointing to the pulldown.
As shown on the right side, once "percent" is selected from the pulldown, Tableau forgets that I entered "10", and the input area is cleared.
(Or worse, Tableau decides that i didn't really want 10 percent, so it makes me enter the value I really wanted—this would be very not good and I choose not to think it's the case)
The User should not have to repeat themself—Tableau should remember and not need to be told again.
