Description Luke 2014-08-10 17:56:35 UTC
Steps to reproduce

1. Create a chart in Word2007/skydrive
2. Manually move the chart’s legend anywhere (without using the default positions, top, bot, left right)
3. Save the .docx file
4. Open with LibreOffice Writer 4.2 or newer

Note: The legend is centered and all position data is lost. attachment 94492 [details] illustrates this issue.
Comment 1 Joel Madero 2014-08-10 19:37:34 UTC
Windows 8.1 & Bodhi 2.x

Attaching what we see in Microsoft Office 2013 vs. LibreOffice

Normal - can prevent high quality/professional work
Medium - seems fine unless we can confirm this as a regression

@Markus - interested in this one? There is another one related to exporting and the legend isn't opening in the right position in Windows. Probably related

Result from LO,,

LO and has slightly better result. At least series sequence is in correct order & shown all.

Also same result in Seems only that has incorrect order of series.

Not a regression, chart not shown at all in LO So it's an improvement :)
Comment 5 Markus Mohrhard 2015-04-25 13:10:33 UTC
Seems to be much improved. We now import all properties and just can't handle the non-overlay flag which is tracked in another bug report.

I'm closing this one as WFM.
