file with indirect & chart
System: Win7 Pro x64, LO 18.104.22.168
1. open the attached file -> the "save" button is on (the user does not change anything!)
2. exit Calc -> the save/ dont save/ cancel box appears
I.e. the file is "dirty", LO changed something even if there is no change in the content by the user (the INDIRECT expression links to another sheet, not to some external file!)
The effect disappears in the following cases:
- use of LO 22.214.171.124
- deleting the chart on the "Sum" sheet (approx. cell G5)
- replacing the indirect expression in cell B7 with its literal: "2010-04-10"
Sorry, typo with the LO version where the bug shows, is of cource 126.96.36.199
This was never confirmed by an independent person - setting to UNCONFIRMED
Sorry but I'm not understanding the reproducible steps. Please verify that this is still a problem with 4.1.5 or 188.8.131.52 and then provide clearer steps on what we are seeing that is broken.
Marking as NEEDINFO - if it's still an issue and you can provide clearer instructions mark as UNCONFIRMED and we'll take a look. Thanks
Tested with 184.108.40.206, still same behavior...
I do not know what information to provide in addition, sorry, just added another file where the chart is deleted ->
- "save" button is off
- when exiting Calc, the the save/ dont save/ cancel box diôes _not_ appear

Just tested with LO 220.127.116.11 Win7/ 64 -> still the same wrong behavior
I can confirm with LO 18.104.22.168 portable - Win7 x86, "Save" button is active after file loaded.
Not occured with LO 22.214.171.124

Confirmed. No problem if we remove indirect function nor chart. Both must exist to reproduce the problem.

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 (5.0.1 or preferably 126.96.36.199 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

Thank you for your help!

This is nothing we can fix. INDIRECT is a volatile function which causes the formula cell to be recalculated after the import and the chart which depends on it to be redrawn. Obviously this causes the document to be dirty.
The solution is to avoid INDIRECT which would be a good thing for any spreadsheet user anyway.
