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.

Dear Claudio Ferraz,

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 with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

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) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

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
