Behavior of a dimension on different shelves

In this article I will experiment with putting Dimensions on different shelves in Tableau.

Here we have a Month dimension on a Color shelf and a measure on a Rows shelf. Please notice that when we include any measure in Columns or Rows shelves the Text Mark changes to Label Mark.
