Description wpeaton4 2013-08-21 16:51:03 UTC
* create XY scatter chart
* manually edit Data Series Name
  - right click on chart and select Data Ranges... menu item
  - on Data Series tab, type in a new name for your series "Test"
* your manually edited name will display nicely in a Legend

* save file
* open file
* name is now gone

On another note, it not possible to edit this name programmatically in BASIC. I have to resort to cheesy Wscript.Sendkeys macros to edit the names. And because the names disappear when I close the file, it is doubly important to be able to put them back in automatically.

Reproducible on LO (Win7 32bit) with ODS file. 

Manually edited name is gone, but legend displays "1"

Still happening in Version:

Same bug listed as #73515 and #67721

This seems to be resolved in LO4.3 and a duplicate of bug 64722.

I feel the same. Confirm bug is gone with LO portable under Win7 x86
