Thanks for reporting.

I can reproduce this problem using Linux Mint 14 x64 and LibreOffice 4.0.0 release. Therefore I mark this as NEW.

Following [1] I mark this as 'Normal Medium'.

Kind regards,

I have a similar issue, maybe it is related to this bug. 

- I create some data in calc which include a hidden row
- Out of this data, a chart will be generated, which does not show the hidden row. 

- Then a do a (default) copy/paste of the chart into draw. There the chart suddenly contains also the hidden row. 
- If I do a paste as GDI metafile, it also happens. 

(Using Libreoffice on Mac OS X 10.9.4)

I noticed that I could not find an option to unhide a hidden row within the context menu or the main menu in version

Nas versões 6.4.5 e 7.0 também, em cada nova versão de uma planilha que é gravada e reaberta, as colunas ocultas mais à direita voltam a aparecer.
