Description Hans-Martin 2011-09-12 14:57:25 UTC
Calc uses a default line strength from 0,8cm, but in my opinion it is too much and charts with many lines will be confusing. The user should be able to preset the line strength by itself.

It seems we are talking about charts, and not about a default width of 0,8cm, but 0,8mm.

I agree, it would be useful to have a possibility to assign common attributes for chart lines (bars, ...) 

This could be done in the following way (for example):
- Each chart also contains an empty 'data series' "common"
  --  That can be reached by button from normal 'Format data series' dialog
- 'Format data series' dialog for this "common" data series looks very similar to
  the normal one, 
  -- but each setting has an additional checkbox "transfer to 
     selected data series"
  -- it contains an additional tab with a data series selector, what allows
     selection with mouseclick, shift+mouseclick, control+mouseclick
  -- A <Transfer> button transfers all settings with checked "transfer ..."
     to the selected data series

- Data Styles (via F11) or 
- A "Chart default settings" dialog (currently only available for colors)

May be you already have some thoughts in the drawer?

Is comment 2 a valid and worth enhancement? I'm not so experienced with Charts.

Set to unconfirmed. Please set back to invalid or wontfix or another appropriate bug status.
