When creating a scatter chart where only symbols are present (i.e., no line conecting them), series color remains deactivated, thus it's not possible to change the series color
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a symbol-only scatter chart
2. Select one of the series of the chart and try to format it
3. Try to change at least one of the series color
Color option is deactivated, making formatting impossible.
Color should be electable, as before 4.2
Select any different line style from none (continuous, dotted, etc.), which activates series color option.

Interesting: I remember was able to select it under Windows 7, though the difference between my Kubuntu and WIndows test was that the second one was done in a just created profile.
Did you tested in a new or previous profle?
My profile was new, as I installed LO, but it is used now. I've just tried with a virgin profile and the error is still as described, the color cannot be chosen.

Well, you are right, I can reproduce it on the same machine I tasted before and I can reproduce it. I think must pay more attention :-/

I can still reproduce the bug under Ubuntu with LibO 4.2.5 from PPA. Was the patch intended for 4.3 or 4.2.6?
It's a pitty it wasn't solved for LibO 4.2... goodbay LibO 4.2...
I hope LibO 4.3 won't have strange and cumbresome regresions...
The bug is still present in LibO 4.2.7 RC2
There isn't going to be any new 4.2.X release of LibO anymore. This bug is fixed in 4.3.
The fix wasn't backported to 4.2 because i) the bug is really minor ii) a workaround exists and it is trivial.
What you can do (if you're using Linux) to have the bug fixed in LibO 4.2 series is to ask LibO packager of the Linux distribution you're using to include the patch (which is linked below) in LibO 4.2 package and release a new version. If you are on Windows, you can ask one of the companies providing paid LibO support to do the same.
If none of the above options is available to you, I'm sorry, there's nothing I can do to help.

You dont know what you're taking about. I do dozens of charts with mixed symbols only & lines only, and even with my own templates it's a tedious task. Minor for you, maybe, not for me.
Besides, LibO 4.3 has it's own regressions, so it's completely useless

There where 8... eight releases of libO 4.2, the largest I've seen, and you waited until the last to tell that there weren't going to be any one more of these.
The color can now be changed for an XY-scatter graph without lines.
