ODP slide where the bug is found.

In formatting axes on a Chart element, the "Reverse Axis" function does not work for secondary axes, but works for primary axes. In the case of the attached presentation, I need the primary axis (Dilation) to be in normal order, that is 0 at the bottom and 10 at the top. On the other hand, I need the secondary axis (Station) to be in reverse order, that is +5 at the bottom and -5 at the top.

1) Open the attached file.
2) Make the Chart editable by double-clicking the object.
3) Right click on the secondary axis
4) "Format Axis" then "Scale" tab
5) Check "Reverse direction"
6) "OK"

ACTUAL RESULTS: The chart remains the same.

EXPECTED RESULTS: The chart's secondary axis should reverse.

BUILD INFORMATION: version Build: 420m0 on Ubuntu 13.10

What I see (LibO on Win7) :
- the "revert" axis button is inoperant for the secondary axis,
- but, when operated for the first axis, it applies to the whole graph (secondary axis included).

So the demand turns to be :
- as is, the button is misleading,
- the "revert axis" feature should be local at axis level, not global at graph level.

IHMO it's the same for "Logarithmic scale".

reproducible with LO (Win 8.1) and I would agree with the comments
