5. Known limitations
  • Vizlib Sheet Menu does NOT support mashups. The purpose of the sheet menu is for you to avoid the usage of mashups altogether ;)
  • Doesn't support Story Mode.
  • Vizlib Sheet Menu is not included in sheet exports (consistent with native functionality)
  • The Vizlib Sheet Menu should be present on all sheets where the navigation bar is needed (at least one tile).
  • The first load of the app is resulting in a quick flicking before the sheet menu is loaded, which can not be circumvented.
  • Vizlib Sheet Menu is now supported in Qlik Sense February 2019!
