After setting a fill pattern in a bars char, the fill does not change. Next time the data series format dialog is opened it starts in the "Bitmap" selector.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create bar chart. Leave default colour fill.
2. Edit data series area
3. Set a fill pattern
(test file attached)
1. Chart is still filled with solid colour
2. If data series format window is opened again, it starts in the “Bitmap” section.
1. Data series filling changes to the selected pattern.

Katarina Behrens committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#113688: Pattern fill can be set from sidebar now
It will be available in 6.1.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.

In 6.0.4, if we choose pattern but leave default Foreground and Background Color, pattern is not applied. But if we change some, it is.
In 6.1+, even if we leave default Foreground and Background Color, pattern is applied.
So it looks like WorksForMe.
Katarina, can you please explain the patch?
By name it seems for unrelated issue, that pattern fill can 't be set from sidebar.
But I tried new build, I still can't set pattern from sidebar, maybe WIP.

May be fixed by https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=ec05c7fd4a0e09e0c953f243475cbc7db9afb02c but I don't know for sure, QA is hard, let's go shopping

The title of the bug says "cannot set data series filling to pattern" and doesn't specify whether this happens in sidebar or in area fill dialog. It didn't work from sidebar so I assigned the patch to this bug
> But I tried new build, I still can't set pattern from sidebar, maybe WIP.
It's a patch from older feature branch and it WFM, so if it doesn't work anymore on dailies, it was presumably someone else who broke it, not me
When I said "I still can't set pattern from sidebar" it really means "I can't use sidebar for charts at all". Guess bug 116838.
It's another issue, but consequently we can't verify the patch.
But I suggest you close this bug and - should God forbidden it doesn't work - we'll just reopen it.
We seldom have chance to set "reopen" flag anyway :)

I find several, possibly related, similar bugs in the 6.1 that just came out. (One was really weird — with certain data values the bar gets separated from the axis! Not sure I can reproduce that one, but I'll try.) This is using charts in calc; I'm not clear whether the "chart" component refers to that or something I'm not aware of, but seeing as the sample above looks like a normal calc ss, I'll assume "chart" is the component I should file my bug(s) under. I'll narrow down the bugs I seem to be finding and send in a report. I only have a couple of previous versions on my machine so I may not be very diligent about trying to find the earliest version my bugs are in.
