screenshot of the input chart (right) copied to the presentation, showing its data table ()

This applies to the intel Mac OS 10.4 and Linux AMD64 versions of libreoffice, both and are affected. Here's the bug:

1. create a chart with Y error bars (did not try X) from 2 columns, one with the values and the second column with the error bar values (tested "bars" and "lines")

2. copy the chart to any other component, i.e. write, presentation, drawing

3, the error bars get changed. A look at the chart data table in draw or presentation shows that the error bar values are now the same as the chart values.

example (pos. / neg. error bars with same value or with different values)

turns into
in the chart data table

I think this bug is really impairing when you want to keep your chart a vector graphics as it should be.

Thanks for your great effort, I me and my wife really like libreoffice.

Same here with LO when copy an chart with y error bars from calc to Writer. This seems to be a regression cause it works well in LO 3.5.7.

Also open an .odt witch include an chart with error bars (from Openoffice) with LO 3.5.7 it is displayed correctly, but not with LO
Comment 2 dittrich.m 2012-11-08 18:34:13 UTC
bug still exist in in 3.6.3 when (tested with LO portable):

- open an .odt
- copy an chart

(LO: Build ID: 58f22d) The chart was copied from Calc to Writer and Impress.

Note that, when you want "Paste special" (Edit -> Paste special) you get weird stuff from the list.

Thanks for attachment
Using second attachment, reproduced in 3.5.7 and 3.6.3 on RFR 17 64 bit
and in 3.6.3 on Windows XP 32 bit

But not reproduced in 3.4.2, 3.5.0, 3.5.4 on Windows XP 32 bit
Therefore regression, backported from 3.6
May be already fixed in 3.6.4

Bug is still present in LO 4.0 beta 2

Actually this bug has been reported before, https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=52159

However, the assigned person of bug #52159 (Rafael Dominguez) seems to be not working on it, and has ignored my emails, so I wouldn't mark this new as a duplicate in the hope that someone else more proactive will take the lead.
