Description Timur 2020-03-06 14:39:28 UTC
1. open PPTX like attachment 158424 [details]
2. double click in chart to edit
3. select 1st click all labels or 2nd click single label
4. right-click "Format data labels" or "Format single data label"
5. change font effect like color

Doesn't work from 6.1. Regression. Tested with PPTX, looks OK with ODP, to test PPT. And to test other effects and settings in other tabs.

tdf#114821 import complex data labels in bar chart
* import static text & fields:
* text is formatted
* DataPointCustomLabelField with field type
  (DataPointCustomLabelFieldType) was introduced.
* text can have many portions & multiple lines
* unit tests for import data labels with formatting

Not implemented: CELLREF field support which needs
importing some additional data from extLst

Shows custom text as a label for data points.

Let's mark as a duplicate because it's the same commit, although bug is reproduced differently. 

Note: This is only for "Format single data label".

Mass "Format data labels" for fonts size and color didn't work from before, repro 3.5 (rotation and border work). ImplementationError. Another bug, unless resolved together.

Still in 7.1+.
Comment 8 Regina Henschel 2020-09-18 11:57:18 UTC
The labels in the referenced pptx file are not purely generated from category, value,... But they contain text, that was entered by the user. Those texts were lost in older versions. Since 6.1 the text is imported in CustomLableFields, a sequence of DataPointCustomLabelField (see API reference). According description in API is should support the com::sun::star::style::CharacterProperties service. But that seems to be not fully implemented. I can see the properties in the Basic IDE, but changing via macro does not work.

For export to odp the code has a "TODO add style" comment about missing Font related properties (SchXMLExport.cxx#3486).

The problem happens, if font properties were set on a single data label in PowerPoint. If you remove the direct formatting in PowerPoint, setting font properties in LibreOffice will work.
