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.

[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:
