Comment 5 ign_christian 2013-06-11 04:28:36 UTC
Still reproducible on LO (Win7 32bit). 

Similar to Bug 63017 (on XY chart), copying to Impress produces same result. 
-> so I think it should moved to component: Chart
Comment 6 A (Andy) 2015-03-07 20:43:32 UTC
Reproducible with LO, Win 8.1

Still an issue in version

(Build ID: 1:6.0.2~rc1-0ubuntu0.16.04.1~lo1)

I would also argue it is potentially a major bug given it affects basic functionality and interaction within LO.

Being able to update Calc and have linked charts in Writer docs automatically update would be a major productivity gain for multiple use cases.

Anyone creating periodic documents based on updated data and analysis would only need to update the spreadsheet charts rather than then have to copy-paste each chart as bitmap.

I would fund a bug bounty to see this bug squashed if it was possible.
