Noticed the Data Label portion of the dialog in step3 - Data Series does not fit in the dialog. It is inconvenient that this cannot be changed in this dialogue, but it can be fixed later on.

Not repro with LO 220.127.116.11 - Ubuntu 12.04 x86
@tolfeg, regardless of this case maybe Windows only, is it always the case? Or spesific to particular chart / procedure?
It doesn't occur under Windows for Ver 18.104.22.168, nor for Fedora 20 ver 4.2.6.
It also occurs under bar charts for Ver 22.214.171.124, Win 7.
It looks like someone increased the height of the multi-line Data Ranges select box. That doesn't make any sense because even for 3D charts it would only need 4 lines.. or am I missing something?

Surely that wasn’t intentional. The dialogs were converted to a new format that may have inadvertently caused this. Thank you for your report!

Untruncated dialogue win7-126.96.36.199
Looks like this was introduced in 4.3.
Caolan/Chris: It seems Windows only bug (at least neither Ign-Christian nor me reproduce this on Linux). I thought you might be interested in this one since it seems more vcl/UI problem than a pure Calc problem.
No repro with LO 188.8.131.52 portable under Win7 x86
Perhaps depends on particular screen resolution? Or a particular file?

No, it depends whether you’re using the Classic or the Aero theme, of course.
Not true. It is even worse under Aero.
I am running 23" Samsung monitor @ 1920x1080 @ Smaller-100%(default).
Am uploading an example under Aero.

Truncated Dialog under Win Aero
(In reply to ign_christian from comment #7)
> No repro with LO 184.108.40.206 portable under Win7 x86
I'm using Aero, 13" laptop, 1366x768 resolution
I have been able to produce both correct and incorrect rendering of the Chart Wizard (CW) dialog on the same machine using the same screen rendering.
It is very likely there is an 'undocumented feature' in Win7 rendering which this dialog has stumbled on. But I have a suggestion to avoid it.
This dialog is very similar to the Data Range (DR) dialog. However the DR dialog is sizable where the CW one is not.
What is happening is that the Data Series box (in CW) is sometimes smaller allowing the height of the CW dialog box to shorten. This is what is clipping the dialog. The easy solution might be to make the CW dialog sizable like the DR one.
It seems some metric is loaded when LO starts which reads parameters from the theme. Then the Data Series text scroll box is sized from that metric. For Aero it takes 10 entries before it scrolls and 8 for Classic. Then the containing box is scaled from there. I have uploaded a side by side comparison. The error is not in the rendering, but in the parameters.

Comparison of the two renderings under Classic
The Data Series box is 8 lines high before it scrolls under the Classic metric while it is 10 under Aero!
In a spreadsheet, create a two column data range like var-x,1,2,3; var-y,1,3,5. Select the range and create a chart; Insert, Object, Chart.... Choose chart type XY(Scatter), select points and Lines. Go to stage 3 by pressing Next twice.
Depending in which theme was in effect at the time LO was loaded, the rendering will be different. After that, you can change the theme and the appearance will change, but the rendering won't.
Right click on the desktop and select Personalize. (this is Control Panel, All Control Panel Items, Personalization.)
There is a central box labeled "Change the visuals and sounds on your computer. This is divided into 3 categories: My Themes, Aero Themes & Basic and High Contrast Themes.
The selected or highlighted theme is the current rendering theme.
Windows 7 Basic, though it looks like a classic theme behaves like it is Aero.
If this is one of the Aero themes like Windows 7, then the CW dialog should be correct.
If one of the Classic or High Contrast themes then it will be truncated.
Change to the other class of themes. The rendering should be the same. Cancel the chart and close all instances of LO. You may even have to stop the Quick Start option in the tool box.
Then reload LO and bring up the test spreadsheet using the other class of theme. The rendering will change.
So this fix won't be available until 4.4?
Given http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?h=libreoffice-4-3-4&id=fb2ed3e17623476c1b772826f0ed4468350baf59, it'll be available too on 4.3.4.
