Description Andreas Schleth 2012-12-13 20:53:47 UTC
Created attachment 71467 [details]
zip file with *.ods and 4 screenshots describing the problem

create a simple bar chart from eg. 2 short columns of random data.

fail 1:  copy and paste the chart somewhere else to the same sheet: 
 a) the new chart area is blank (should be the same diagram as before), 
 b) there is no way to edit the second chart into something chart-like

fail2:  start from scratch as before (one diagram) and save as *.ods. Then reload the document and find: the chart is blank and broken as above.

I just saw this behaviour as well with


from openSUSE:Tumbleweed

A spreadsheet with a chart was saved, and on reopening, all the chart setup had disappeared

I use Libre Office, the newest version for Win7/German. The error happens since last update on 2012-11-18.

In my case, some of the diagrams have disappeared, when I save and reopen the file. The file contains 16 sheets, nearly all with one diagram. Some diagrams are still there, some shifted to the upper left corner, some disappear completely. It might be, all diagrams created before the last update remain, but the behaviour is not clear. Older files show the diagrams, until the diagram is moved or changed.
Comment 4 Hans Peter Schwob 2013-01-05 10:45:07 UTC
Changed now to version 3.6.4 (LibO_3.6.4_Win_x86_install_multi.msi). (Search for updates said I had installed actual version. Found newer version on bugzilla!)

But problem still exists. One way, which is reproducible:
- copy one sheet with diagram to new document. This document shows diagram.
- Save this new document.
- Open new document: The diagram disappeared.

Additional Info to comment 3 & 4

I installed Apache-Open-Office 4.1 (actual version) and the problem is gone. Also other problems with the diagrams are gone, also some nice features. I am sad to leave LibreOffice, but I just cannot live with these problems.
Comment 6 Heinz Repp 2013-02-18 22:05:25 UTC
I think this is related: with 3.5.7 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (I am forced to use this version as 3.6.x breaks scrolling in writer) spreadsheets created with previous version mostly show the diagrams moved top left. I did not modify this files, as I have not enough trust in a program that gets things so wrong, so I cannot report lost diagrams.

The chart in the attachment is clearly corrupted (blank area, nothing can be changed). But if you remove the chart and remake it, it works as expected:
1/ copy&paste elsewhere: no problem
2/ edit the second chart: no problem
3/ save the file as .ods and reload: no problem.

Closing this bug report as WorksForMe.
Because many work has been done on Chart module, please do not reopen if you have problem with chart but open a new one. Thank you for understanding.

Best regards. JBF
