Screenshot of the dialogue and problem.

Problem description: When editing data points of a chart, it is impossible to change the color of the data series without introducing a line.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Make a scatter plot
2. Select data series
3. Right click and select "Format Data Series"
4. Click on "Line"
5. Under "Icon" there is no way to change the color of icons.

Current behavior: The way to change the color of icons is to select a style other than "none" for line, select a color, and then select the "none" style again.

Expected behavior: It's expected that either colors have there own color selector, or that the color selector for changing the line applies to both and can change the color of both even when the chart doesn't have lines connecting the data points.

Thank you for reporting this enhancement request! I can confirm that this is a valid enhancement request on:
Version: 4.3.0.0

As I've been able to confirm the enhancement request I am marking as:

New (confirmed)
Enhancement
Medium - default seems appropriate

As a side note it seems like these instructions do not work: https://help.libreoffice.org/Chart/Chart_Type_XY#Points_only -- maybe I was just doing it wrong.

Either way being able to easily change point color would be useful - no reason not to include it in "format line" and not lock out the color picker there.
