I don't know if it actually counts as a bug. But the properties window is totally gray at some point. Don't know if this should happen, it looks somewhat odd.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Set sidebar to show Properties
2. Insert a chart
3. Click once on the paper (outside the chart)

Actual Results:  
Gray properties screen 

Expected Results:
A place holder or something?

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: YES

I agree. If you click outside twice (get back to the document's properties), then double-click inside the chart, there's this text, which should be a good candidate instead of pure greyness:
"Properties for the task that you are performing are not available for the current selection"

A known issue that the dev that did the chart sidebar wasnt able to tackle.
