Description Francisco 2012-12-09 03:18:37 UTC
Problem description: 
When making a chart and adding a textbox inside, it is not possible to use the classic format buttons for the text ("font name", font size, bold, italic, etc.) to the format toolbar. It is possible to add those commands, but they remain greyed while editing the text box. 

Formatting *is* possible through right-click - >character, or adding the "Character" button to the toobar. But not allowing to edit text direct from the toolbar is quite annoying. Besides, any other LibO app allows to format textboxes through its format toolbar


Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Calc, make a chart (any)
2. Add a text box and edit it adding any text.


Current behavior:
1. "Font name", "font size" nor any other typical format options doesn't appear appear automatically in format toolbar for editing text (IMHO it should).
2. Adding any of this commands to format toolbar is possible, but they remainsgreyed, not even displays the name of the font.

Expected behavior:
Formatting textboxes inside charts should be as easy as in any other  LibO app.

It's possible now on LO 4.0.4.1 (Win7 32bit)
right-click Title/Subtitle > Format Title/Subtitle

Perhaps I misunderstood, please give more detailed steps

Hi Ign. Of course, you can format it, I stated that in the bug report. Besides what I'm reporting doesn't work for native chart titles (bug 39052) like chart title, what I'm reporting is that it is not possible to edit drawn textboxes (through Draw toolbar in Calc) only with the format toolbar.

For example, first screenshot shows Draw, with a textbox. Look at the format toolbar: there are many text commands: font name, bold, italic, centered, right... etc. This is shown in screenshot 1.

When adding a textbox inside Calc (or other LibO app), this commands works as expected, as shown in screenshot 2.

A textbox created with the same tool is not format-able through toolbar commands  inside any chart. This is shown in screenshot 3.


Adding one step more for clarifying: 
------------------------------------------------
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Calc, make a chart (any)
2. Add a text box and edit it adding any text.
3. Try to edit the format of the text using *toolbar commands*, as in any other LibO app. 


Current behavior:
1. "Font name", "font size" nor any other typical format options doesn't appear appear automatically in format toolbar for editing text (IMHO it should).
2. Adding any of this commands to format toolbar is possible, but they remains greyed, not even displays the name of the font (as shown in screenshot 3).
-----------------------------------------------

Is it better now? :-)

Hello Francisco

I see..text box in chart can't be edited using 'Text Formatting' toolbar. Though it can be edited with double-clicking text box > mark the texts > right-click > Character. Is that what you mean?

Oh, yes. But more presicely "text formating commands", because that toolbar doesn't exist. I created it adding those commands, but you could add any of them, to any toolbar, and they wont work.

Now, I think it's more a "usability" issue rather "formating"... am I right?

It's been like this since before the existence if LibO.
