Clicking the help button in the diagram assistent does not show any info about the "time based charting" checkbox.
(I am using the German GUI where the checkbox is called "Zeitbasiertes Zeichnen".)
reproducible with LO 220.127.116.11 (Win 8.1), tested with language = German and English
1. Open CALC

In the offline LO help file and in the online LO help on the internet you can't find information about the function TIME BASED CHARTING.

In LO 22.214.171.124 (Win 7), I don't find the "time based charting" checkbox any more.
Still/again seeing the Time based charting checkbox in LO Calc 126.96.36.199 in two places:
- Insert - Chart... Wizard, step Data Ranges, as described in Comment 2.
- For existing charts: Double-click a chart, then choose Format - Data Ranges.
A description of what this option does is still missing from the Help documentation, as far as I can tell.
Reopening this bug accordingly as UNCONFIRMED. If others see the problem as well, please change to NEW.
Also changing the Component from Chart to Documentation. Feel free to correct me if that is wrong.

Hmm, that's strange. Here are my screenshots, using LO 18.104.22.168 as well.
Ah, sorry, I see what is the problem now. I had "Enable experimental features (may be unstable)" enabled in LO Options -> Advanced. If disabling that, the Time based charting option is gone.
I guess this means this bug report should be closed?
