The Calc document that is causing the problem.

Problem description: When trying to copy a chart with a black or 80% gray trend line from Calc to Writer, the old color of the trend line is copied.

Steps to reproduce:
1. open a new Calc document
2. Type in: 1 into cell A1 and B1, 2 into cell A2 and B2, ... 5 into cell A5 and B5 
3. Select the cells
4. go to Insert->Chart from the menu bar
5. select "XY (Scatter)" as the chart type
6. Click Finish
7. Insert a default linear "Trend Line" into the chart
8. After inserting the default trend line as the blue color, change it to black
9. Open a text document
10. Copy and paste the chart to the text document
11. The trend line is still blue!

Current behavior:  The trend line is the old blue color.

Expected behavior:  The trend line should be the black color it was set to later.

reproduced in LibO 3.5.0 beta 1 on Fedora 64 bit
black line in Calc becomes _blue line_ in Writer
Writer dislikes only black color (my be it is default and Calc not provides information about this color. Only my IMHO)
Comment 2 Neil 2012-02-16 19:36:43 UTC
reproduced in version 3.5.0 release.

@ Neil
"Version" is most early version of LibreOffice, where bug can be reproduced. Not current version of LibreOffice.
It reproducible in 3.3.4 version, so change version to there.
Comment 4 ign_christian 2013-06-23 05:43:21 UTC
Still reproducible on LO (Win7 32bit), seems that only black colored trend line.

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

    Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.1 or later)

    If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
  If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

    Update the version field
    Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
    Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)


2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

Not reproducible for me with LibreOffice built at home under Ubuntu 14.10 x86-64.

Closing as WorksForMe. Please, feel free to reopen if you still encounter the same issue with one of the current stable versions or the master.
