Description Cathy Crumbley 2019-04-03 04:12:15 UTC
Created attachment 150492 [details]
sample table for chart in Writer and Calc

To recreate:
1. Select contents of cells in the attached spreadsheet.
2. Click icon in formatting bar to start Chart Wizard.
3. Select chart type and click Next.
4. Select Data series in columns and First row as label. Click Next.

What I expect to see:
In the Data series box, a list of the 6 data series names in the first row of the table.

What I see:
The results are inconsistent. 
For most chart types, "Column A" appears along with the 6 data series names. Exceptions:

For XY chart type, the 6 data series names appear without "Column A."

For Bubble chart type, only "bravo, delta, foxtrot" appear.

For Stock chart type, "Unnamed Series, Unnamed Series 2, Unnamed Series 3" appears in Calc. In Writer, "bravo, echo, unnamed series" appears.

I see this in the and versions in both Calc and Writer.

I understand that there are some differences in how the Chart Wizard works that depend on the type of chart chosen. However, I am trying to explain Calc charts to people and it would be a bit easier without these inconsistencies.

Dear Cathy Crumbley,

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.

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:

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
