There needs to be a way to print charts that are on a spreadsheet. Right now when you want a chart printed you have to do all sorts of formatting/strecthing/print previewing to get a chart to fit on a piece of paper correctly. Excel offers a simple way to print a chart and the chart only. If I remember correctly you just select the chart and then file->print. It comes out neatly formatted to fit a piece of paper. I have had a request in at openoffice since 2002-06-20 at...

Thanks for new idea
Printing currently going via PDF, therefore resembles this: Bug 30944
in 3.5.3 not implemented yet, changing status to NEW
PS: may be exists extensions for LinreOffice or OpenOffice that do this functionality?
This has not changed even in 3.6..
I changed it to highest. This feature is implemented in Lotus 123 for aroung 20 years and also available in Excel. It looks to me that someboby overlooked this feature very early in StarOffice.
I completely understand that this is a very important missing feature. But if this feature was never in StarOffice/OOo/LibO, this report is still an enhancement request, not a bug. "Critical" bugs should be only issues which
-- cause frequent crashes
-- cause important data loss
-- prevent LibO from installation/starting.
Please don’t take this as offence: I understand how severe this problem is. It is just so that we have plenty of equally or even more important bugs, so if the Importance pickers should be of any use, we need to get them (more or less) right.
But there are good news, too:
For enhancement request, we have got an experimental vote process at
So please add the present report there (using the "Template for new entries" at the end!), together with a first voting for it.
Thank you for your understanding!
I'm a rookie here and have to learn a lot. I inserted it in THE LIST and hope more people are voting for it.

Thank you very much! I have added my vote there ...
Ias I commented on the vote site. extremely useful. I'd need that for during study since year 2000 until 2004.
Also, python scripts do excellent graphics, so I think that it could be done with this tool.

LibreOffice development currently prioritizes bugs with the so called MAB (most annoying bugs) -- as this bug has not run through that process (including writing a short rationale for this bug being a candidate and other who are watching the tracker bug silently approving that rationale etc.) its priority is set to high. Note this is effectively no change in the urgency assigned to this bug, as we are currently not making a difference between high and highest and severity is untouched.
You can find out more about MABs and how the process works by contacting libreoffice qa on irc:
The QA wiki page also gives you hints on how to get in contact with the team (if IRC fails you, your next best choice is the mailing list):
