Dashboard Text tile width cannot be edited, and the default width is surprisingly narrow. Even with HTML inside of the text tile.
There is a feature request you can vote for on our feedback system: Adjust text box width
There are two possible workarounds:
- Create LookML object with HTML parameter, and display it on dashboard as a single tile visualization.
- Use div class = vis to trick the text tile into thinking it's a single value visualization, then insert the text you want. Insert the following into the text tile body:
<font color="#5A2FC2" size="6" ><center><b>Using div class = vis we get a white background, and override the 500px default. See? The text goes as wide as the tile</b></center></font>
