Thanks for reporting.

I can reproduce this behavior using Mac OSX 10.8.4 with LibreOffice RC.

How to reproduce:
* Create new spreadsheet
* Fill in some random data
* Create a chart of it (don't matter), click finish to skip all configurations of the chart (not necessary here)
* double click on the legend
* Tab 'Position', select 'bottom'
* Save file as xls

Behavior: reopening the document result in a legend on the right side of the chart.

Kind regards,

Actually the issue appear only when saving in .xls Microsoft Excel 2003.
Saving in ODS format the changes are maintained.

Trying to save in Excel 2007/2010 produce a more strange behaviour since all sheet formatting is lost and the chart disappear.

Can confirm this still exists in versions and release, on OS X 10.9.2, saving as .xls 2003.

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 on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.3 or later)

   If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
 If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

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)


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
