Description Leon Stringer 2013-09-09 10:32:21 UTC
Problem description: 
Chart elements subtitle and Y-axis orientation (and sometimes even chart data) are lost when saving to .xlsx format.

This may be a known limitation of the Office Open XML filter, I appreciate you get a warning that the document may not me saved correctly, but as you always get that it's hard to know if it actually applies.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a spreadsheet with some data.
2. Insert a chart for the data. Enter a subtitle and a Y-axis label.
3. Save the chart as a "Microsoft Excel 2007/2010 XML (.xlsx)" file.
4. Close the file.
5. Open the file.

Current behavior:
The subtitle is no longer present, the Y-axis label is no longer vertically oriented. (I've also had chart data no longer be displayed but this isn't consistent).

Expected behavior:
The subtitle is saved and displayed, the vertical orientation of the Y-axis label is retained.
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: rc
Comment 1 A (Andy) 2013-12-28 21:39:23 UTC

Comment 2 Will Furnass 2014-07-23 16:09:54 UTC
Reproducible with version (Build ID: 420m0(Build:2)) on Linux Mint 17.0 (64-bit)

Moving to proper component: Chart
Change summary to be more spesific

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 ( 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

2. Test your bug 
3. Leave a comment with your results.

Re-tested with LibreOffice on Microsoft Windows 7. Issue appears to be fixed.
Comment 6 Leon Stringer 2015-09-09 13:22:07 UTC
I'll leave this as RESOLVED WORKSFORME. The Y-axis label orientation is now retained as expected. The subtitle is still lost but it looks like Excel doesn't have a subtitle for charts so one couldn't reasonable expect it to be retained.
