I am unable to add a textbox to a chart in LO 7.1.
See the steps in bug 83159 to reproduce the problem.

I have no problem with Version: 7.1.0.0.alpha1+ (x64)
Build ID: 72056f39e01e36afac36c62988331b6813c8214f
CPU threads: 8; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 19041; UI render: default; VCL: win
Locale: de-DE (en_US); UI: en-US
Calc: CL

But I get a crash in Version: 7.1.0.0.alpha1+ (x64)
Build ID: 746532883f95f2c93ac2f94a578d2a37efdce7ab

I first thought, reason might be the empty chart. But it crashes too, after I had add data to the chart object.

In version 7.3.0.1 (and in some previous versions; I don't remember when it started), there seems to be no explicit way to insert a text box inside a chart. 
A workaround that I have been using is to create the textbox outside of the chart and then copy-paste it into the chart.
