Description Samuel V. 2012-08-14 11:37:52 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a table and a chart which is representing this table (linewise)
2. Fill out some values
3. Remove a line in the table

Current behavior:
the line below the deleted line is double-represented in the chart
(Also the things get messed up, if I insert a line in the represented range of the chart, but maybe this will be repaired during fixing THIS bug)

Expected behavior:
line should disappear in the chart

Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:14.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/14.0.1

At this time I can avoid this bug in my macro with this dirty hack:

' to avoid double categorie when reduced by only 1
' reduce by 2
For i = 12 To 24
	ranges(i).EndRow = ranges(i).EndRow - 2

' increase by 1
For i = 12 To 24
	ranges(i).EndRow = ranges(i).EndRow + 1

Reproducible with LO, Win 8.1.

Notes to Reproduce:
1. Open Calc
2. Test for instance with the following table:
         Column A    Column B
Row 1:   A           B
Row 2:   1           1
Row 3:   2           2
Row 4:   3           3
Row 5:   4           4

3. Select it to create a chart and select in the section Data Range = Data Series In Rows and Finish

4. Select Row 3 and delete it

Result: The selected data range for the chart will be correctly shrinked, but row 4 will be wrongly shown three times in the chart

5. Select the last row and delete it

Result: LO does not recognise this deletion and shows an empty entry in the chart -> here it would be nice if LO would recognise this and "shrink" the chart -> similiar to the shown selected data range after step 4
