For certain objects (i have tested charts and checkboxes) references to cells within the objects are static. This can have very annoying consequences. If this is not easy to fix, the programming team should at least consider some solution when copying an entire sheet. The way it is now, all checkboxes and charts within the newly made sheed will still refer to the data on the original sheet.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. on a new document create a checkbox or chart that refers to one or more cells in the current sheet
2. copy the sheet using the 'move or copy sheet'function
the objects on the newly created sheet are as-good-as useless because they refer to the data on the original sheet. The references need to be updated manually
the references within the objects are automatically updated
User Profile Reset: Yes
with complex sheets containing a lot of objects the behaviour is very annoying since I can't just copy the sheet to a new one expecting it to behave the same which is cause to significant frustration.
- Sheet1, checkbox Linked Cell: A1
- copy sheet
- Sheet2: checkbox Linked Cell: Sheet1.A1

Dear Fabio Zaffora,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa
Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
It also fails when copying and pasting on the same sheet:
If a checkbox is created in A1 and the anchor is set to A1 with linked cell B1.
Now copy both cells A1:B1 to A2:B2 but the new checkbox is still linked to B1.
A2 should be linked to B2.

Chart sample to test copy.
On the sample file copying chart in H2, anywhere, always refers to the range of the copied chart, no way to change it.
Maybe the easy way could be asking when copying.
I don't know if it would be possible to have the chars with relative addresses instead of absolute, so when copying it can change to adapt the new chart relative to their position.
