Problem description:
As the title says, it isn't possible to put in the same chart series which require to be smoothed with one that doesn't need to be smooth. The option to select smoothed lines isn't in the format menu of a series but in the "select chart type" menu. Although it's good to select directly the type (smoothed or not) from the beginning, it should be possible to have the ability of change if a particular series is smoothed or not, without having to change the type.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Make a scatter chart with 2 or more series in Calc with continuous lines but no smoothed
2. Try to format one series to make it smooth

Current behavior:
It isn't possible to make just one series smooth without changing all the series. Actually, if one have series that are just "points" and other series that are "curves" and someone change the type of chart, all the series appear with the same type, even the ones that where previously formatted.

Expected behavior:
One should be able to change the type of the series he want

Define "N-1" series independently from the series you want to be non-smoothed, in a chart that HAS smothed data, where "N" is the numbre of points of this non-smoothed series. Possible but tedious.

This happens in Kubuntu from 12.04 x86 & x86_64; Windows XP & 7 x86. I'm sure it's platform independent.

This is also an old problem from the times of OOo. MS Excel allows to make this since MS Office 2000 if I remember correctly.

Indeed, but not a default (LO works as designed) but an enhancement.

Thank you for the report.
Best regards. JBF
