Example of the error in a chart

Problem description: 
Whener I add a border line to a chart, the bottom and right lines are smaller the others. It usually gets it self fixed by moving the chart around or making it bigger.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a chart
2. Add border lines

Current behavior:
Lines are of different size.

Expected behavior:
Lines to be of the same size.

Comment 1 Michael Stahl (allotropia) 2012-02-03 11:12:14 UTC
can't reproduce this playing with borders for some minutes now;
they're never asymmetric, not even in 3.4.3.

Rainer, can you reproduce it? if not close it...
Comment 2 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-02-03 11:41:15 UTC
NOT reproducible with "LibreOffice 3.5.0 RC3 German UI/Locale [Build-ID: 7e68ba2-a744ebf-1f241b7-c506db1-7d53735] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit).

Also not reproducible with a 3.4.2 RC based daily.

- Attach a sample document (not only screenshot)
- Contribute a step by step instruction containing every key press and every 
  mouse click how to reproduce your problem (due to example in Bug 43431)
  Every little detail might be important.
– if possible contribute an instruction how to created a sample document 
  from the scratch)
- add information 
  -- concerning your PC (video card, ...)
  -- concerning your OS (Version, Distribution, Language)
  -- concerning your LibO localization (UI language, Locale setting)
  –- Libo settings that might be related to your problems 
    (video hardware acceleration ...)
  -- how you launch LibO and how you opened the sample document
  –- whether you also see that
  -- everything else crossing your mind after you read linked texts

Might be Linux specific?

If we get additional information, may be you can do an additional test?

Sample of a document with a chart
Comment 4 neochuki 2012-02-05 11:54:05 UTC
Firstly it looks like it is linux specific becouse I could not reproduce the error on windows (my computer has dual boot) and the error appeared on a friend's computer with xubuntu 11.04.
Secondly it does not matter if I create a new document or if I open one with the
chart already on it.  

Steps to reproduce:
1º Click on new document
2º Click on Insert->Object-Chart
3º Click on Format Seleccion
4º Click on stile and select continous
5º Click on the up arrow of width to increment
6º Click on OK 

Hardware information
- Procesor: Intel Core i7 860
- Graphics Card: Nvidia GT 220
- 8 GB RAM

Software Information
- Ubuntu 11.04   
- Spanish location
- Gnome 2.32.1
- Kernel 2.6.38-13-generic
- Nvidia privative drivers: NVIDIA UNIX x86_64 Kernel Module  270.41.06  
- LibO 3.4.3 OOO340m1 (Build:302)

I did some more testing and if I create more charts and I add the border lines in all of them the error occurs.
Comment 5 Michael Stahl (allotropia) 2012-02-06 08:42:10 UTC
ah, now i can reproduce the problem:

it is not the border on the frame in the outer document,
but the border in the inner chart document that is drawn incorrectly.

the bugdoc has this in Object 1/content.xml:

    <style:style style:name="ch1" style:family="chart">
      <style:graphic-properties draw:stroke="solid" svg:stroke-width="0.152cm"/>

if the embedded chart document is activated, then it is drawn correctly,
but while it is not activated, the borders are apparently drawn
too thick and so the right/lower ones don't fit in the area.

interestingly, this last seemed to work in OOo 3.2.1;
the bugdoc already looks broken in OOo 3.3.
Comment 6 tester8 2012-02-07 01:15:43 UTC
Reproduced with

LibreOffice 3.5.0rc3
Ubuntu 10.04.3 x86
Linux 2.6.32-38-generic Russian UI

For both attached and new document.

Not reproduced with

OOo 3.2.0 OOO320m12 (build:9483) (same system)

For both attached and new document.
Comment 7 Kyle Bentley 2012-03-26 18:56:52 UTC
I can confirm that I am also affected by this bug.  Creating a chart in the exact steps as commenter #4 gives line borders on the right and bottom of the chart that are narrower than the lines on the top and left of the chart.

Intel atom 300
Ubuntu 11.10 x86_64
LibreOffice 3.5.1 - installed from website, not from ubuntu repositories.
Running the standard english locale.

I've also encountered this bug coming from 3.4 in the ubuntu repo's.

Comment 9 Julien Nabet 2012-11-01 07:54:05 UTC
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated yesterday, I "think" I reproduced the problem.
- created some data
- select data/click on chart then finish (to use defaults options)
- right click "Format Chart Area..."
- Borders, style continuous
=> only top and left have a border.
I don't know how to have a thick border to top and left and a thin border to right and bottom, that's why I mentionned I think I reproduced.

I noticed that if I change width to anything other than 0 value, everything is ok.
Comment 10 tommy27 2013-09-25 19:19:54 UTC
not reproducible in under Win7 64bit
I wonder if Linux user are still affected by this with current LibO release
Comment 11 Julien Nabet 2013-09-25 19:51:15 UTC
Tommy27: On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated yesterday, I still reproduce this, at least exactly what I described in comment 9.
Comment 12 Rodolfo 2013-10-13 23:59:38 UTC
It works fine when I follow Julien steps:

* using LibreOffice 'shipped' on Debian testing (Jessie): Version: Build id: 410m0(Build:2);

* using LibreOffice "master" build under commit  0b8abbf1924a5c2262df50cc95c8e9200890f6f6 (Sep 20 23:46:11 2013)

I noticed that when line thickness is 0cm, it shows no border. However, if I resize the chart (in Chart edition, not on sheet edition), it shows a thin border (1 pixel). But they all have same size.
Comment 13 retired 2014-12-28 09:20:50 UTC

Ubuntu 12.10 and LO Version:
Build ID: 40m0(Build:0)
Locale: en_US

all borders of the chart are bold and identical.
