Description gleppert 2011-07-09 11:04:10 UTC
Printing charts on greyscale printers or publishing charts for greyscale journals/media is a common use case for charts in documents or spreadsheets.

Currently, LibreOffice does not support greyscale-charts out of the box. It is always necessary to manually convert every colour in the chart to a distinguishable (!) grey level for printing it out. 

Hence, it would be great, if:

a) Chart would offer a greyscale colour palette
b) Chart would get the ability to choose a greyscale mode when creating a new chart.
c) Chart would get the ability to convert existing charts with one click to a greyscale-palette.
