Chart text should reformat when copy in calc or writer

Problem description: 

Chart text become distorted after copying chart inside calc or to writer - both when inserting as XML or GDI metafile

It is especially text that has been inserted via the "text insert tool" that get reformated. 

This don't remember this was a problem before updating to ver. 

Hope a solution can be found as it is important to be able to copy charts.

Thank you for reporting this issue! I have been able to confirm the issue on:
Platform: Bodhi Linux 2.2 x64
+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + 
As I've been able to confirm this problem on an earlier release I am changing the version number as version is the earliest version that we can confirm the bug, we use comments to say that the bug exists in newer versions as well.

Marking as:

New (confirmed)
Normal - can prevent high quality work
High - as author has pointed out, copying a chart is quite important and used frequently

Other notes: The chart looks substantially different in 3.6 vs. for test document. Might require a separate bug report though.

Markus or Kohei - this one yours?

for me not reproducible with LO (Win 8.1)

Does this issue still persist for you or anybody else with the latest release of LO?

I can confirm bug on LO 6.0.0 with several behaviours according bug reproduction process.

Based on initial attachment:

- Copy chart to new Calc sheet -> Text ok and data ok.
- Copy selected range D1:K26 to new Calc sheet -> Text ok and data ok.
- Copy chart to new Writer doc -> Text ok and data loss.
- Copy selected range D1:K26 to new Writer doc -> Text ok and data reset to zero.

Dear bjarnen,

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

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
