The problem is that chart2 only supports a limited number of gradients. And there is no color selection for these gradients.

@Thorsten: Do we support arbitrary colors in gradients already?

> @Thorsten: Do we support arbitrary colors in gradients already?
Technically yes - or is this a ODF limitation?

> Technically yes - or is this a ODF limitation?

I haven't checked ODF but would not worry that much about it for charts. If it is technically implemented it means we surely only have some uno problems and ui changes in chart2 to implement it.

Confirmed: and latest nightly as of today as well.

Graphs show with color in Excel 2010 but not in LO.

So Platform -> All.

Hi Rainer,

I do not reproduce this issue with version, windows XP SP3. Maybe it was fixed somewhere?

Could you please test with the latest verion to see if you still reproduce. If not, set it as WORKSFORME.

Comment 9 Buovjaga 2014-09-24 10:03:10 UTC
Color OK, but gradient not in effect.

** 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 (5.0.1 or preferably 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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreoffice-qa

Well as bug 57642 is about the gradient not matching this can be closed as WFM.
