In Salesforce.com Wave Analytics in the new 2.0 Wave Designer, if you find that a component is un-selectable or after selecting your browser freezes here are two things to help resolve:
- Check your XMD File
- When doing custom formatting through the XMD, adding percents and dollars specifically, you do not need to add a label and in some cases this will actually confuse the system so remove it. You can access your XMD from dataset -> edit -> download and then looking at it in a JSON viewer.
- Check your Widget title vs. measureField
- I had an issue where I added a Number field and after adding had to go to the widget section and update the measureField. This was specifically a pigql measure that had multiple columns and somehow it had picked the wrong one.
Measure me if you have your editor freeze up, I might have some more tips but generally rechecking that all the components and any XMD modifications you have made fixed my issue.
