(Note: this problem occurs in at least the Linux and Windows versions.)
When displaying "candlestick" stock charts, the candle "body" is displaced downward in each individual bar.
i.e. the height of the candle body is correct, but the top edge of the body is drawn where the bottom edge should be, and the bottom edge is drawn below the lower end of the tail.
If someone will point me to the appropriate source code I'd be happy to submit a patch :)
BTW, this problem appeared somewhere between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 but I can't be more specific than that, sorry.
Sorry, I just discovered that this problem also appears in 184.108.40.206
please upload a screenshot to better show what you mean and what you consider a bug.
do you remember which was the last version where the bug was not present?

Screenshot of incorrect stock chart
The 'bodies' of the candlesticks look like they're about to slide off the bottom of the bars and land on the floor :)
i.e. the bottom of the body should never be lower than the 'tail'.
The last version that works correctly for me is 220.127.116.11, but I'd be happy to test earlier 4.2.x betas if you can tell me where to download them.
is this "candlestick" bug a FILEOPEN or a FILESAVE issue?
I mean, does a broken candlestick chart created in 4.2.x load correctly in 4.1.x?
viceversa, a correct chart in 4.1.x will be displayed correctly in 4.2.x?
would you please attach test files?
I don't know where to find early 4.2.x betas
you can download the 4.2.0 final release from here in portable version:
I just tested 18.104.22.168 and it shows the same bug.
A spreadsheet created with 4.2.x displays correctly in 4.1.x and one created by 4.1.x displays incorrectly with 4.2.x

Very simple example created with 22.214.171.124
Displays correctly in 4.1.x
Okay, I'm about an hour into my very first build of libreoffice from git sources.
Because 126.96.36.199 already has the bug, I decided to start with "libreoffice-4.2-milestone-1". Does this seem a reasonable place to start bisecting?
I won't know for hours yet whether this build will even finish, or contain the bug, but I can see this process will take many hours of my time, so I'd like to know ASAP if I'm way off target.
I'm amazed :) git 853299f03 compiled without error. This is easier than I expected, based on all the warnings about how fragile the libreoffice build is.
Anyway, this build already has the bug I've described, so the guilty patch was committed before 4-2-milestone-1.
I confirm issue with your test file in 188.8.131.52 under Win7x64 (it is diplayed correctly with 4.1.x, so it's a regression).
I add a Calc developer to CC list. maybe he can help.
Before anything else, see Bug 75075 - Stock Chart 3 & Stock Chart 4 not appropriate display, where a fix was provided by Markus Mohrhard and is available for master.
Thanks Jaques, Marckus's patch fixes this bug :)
great, let's consider this asa duplicate and ask Markus if the patch can be backported to the 4.2.x branch
