Problem with default Break setting (XLS on Left and XLSX on right)
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a chart in Excel with long label names (2 or more lines)
2. Save as .XLS and .XLSX
3. Open in Calc
Note: no need to change any settings, just use all defaults.
When Calc imports Excel XLS charts, it correctly sets:
But for XLSX charts it sets
This causes as the labels in XLSX to overlap and makes them unreadable.

screenshot 4.3.x vs 4.4.x
thanks 4 your report.
I tested it under Win7x64 using 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124.alpha1+ (*)
if I save the provided XLS to XLSX and reload it, I see change in disposition of x axis labels.
however in 4.3.2 the orientation in 45° oblique with no overlap (however still different from original XLS format), whilst in 126.96.36.199+ it's horizontal with overlapping text
so the bug has different behaviour in 4.3.x and 4.4.x
see my screenshots
as an additional information, the XLSX saved by LibO are correctly displayed by MS Excel Viewer

With Sushil's patch for Bug 84647, both issues had been resolved in 4.4, but now we are back to using the wrong OOXML defaults for:
Could someone explain why we went back? Unless there's a good reason, could we please restore them? Thanks for looking into this!
I have merged two patches and resubmitted it.

As kohei explained in the commit where he reverted the change the patch is wrong as long as we don't also change the layouting algorithm:
Markus and Sushil,
I was just confused because this bug had been fixed and then broken again with no mention on the tracker. Thanks for clearing that up.
The reason Kohei gave for reverting the commit was "to avoid overlapping of angled text label objects." Try attachment 108471 [details] in this report with BOTH of with Sushil's patches and you'll see that the correct defaults for FLow:Break-enabled at at least partially addresses the overlapping issue caused by Bug 84647.
I understand you want to be cautious with the stale and fresh builds, but shouldn't the master be using the correct defaults? That way developers are not trying to fix the layout algorithm when the root cause is incorrect defaults?
Thanks so much for your help with the labeling issue!
Are the edge cases that our layout engine can't handle documented? By using the correct defaults, we can help you identify them.
We are still ignoring the OOXML break parameter causing charts with long label names to render incorrectly.

Break parameter not imported causing chart to be incorrectly rendered in

This report seems to be based on an incorrect assumption that XML tag in the OOXML standard which maps to the ODF Break parameter.
The fix for Bug 122091 resolved this bug
