Description brazz 2018-11-16 09:11:32 UTC
Using Libreoffice on Ubuntu 18.04.

When a chart is created out of a table in Writer, it is no longer possible to edit its data ranges afterwards: "data ranges" is not available in context menu, and is greyed out in menu and toolbar menu.

It used to work fine on previous versions up to Libreoffice 6.0.6.

This is no way related to Calc here: only Writer tables and charts a are used here.

Steps to reproduce:
- open writer and create a new ODT document
- insert a table in this document, feed it with numeric data
- select a few columns and rows of this table, and insert chart
- edit chart as required
- (save document and quit Writer, run Writer and open document)
- edit chart by double-clicking it: "data ranges" feature is not available, thus cannot be edited.
