Example file made with Calc
Many Chart Legend properties are not preserved when the spreadsheet is saved as XLSX, including Gradient, Bitmap, Pattern and Hatch area fills, transparencies with gradient and border line styles different from Continuous. The custom size of the chart legend isn't preserved either, but that's a different bug.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new spreadsheet in LibreOffice Calc.
2. Create a simple chart (a column chart with default settings will do) based on any values.
3. Change the area fill of the chart legend to bitmap, pattern, hatch, transparent with gradient, or the Border line style to something different from Continuous.
4. Save the file as XLSX.
5. Reload the file.
The custom chart legend property will be lost.
The custom chart legend property should be preserved.

The Excel-made example saved in LO6 alpha
If we set a few chart legend properties in Excel, then open the file and save it in LO, we get:
- Solid color and border roudtrips fine
- Gradient, bitmap, pattern, image, transparency+gradient opens fine, but disappears after saving.
