Can you show me such a document? There are different kinds of 3D charts and not all support z axis elements.
1) Open Writer
2) Insert Chart
3) Open chart type dialog and check 3d look
4) Z axis and Z axis title checkboxes are disable, though Z axis checkbox is checked
5) Exiting and re-entering chart edit mode wont make the checkboxes enable
Ok, this is actually most likely the correct behavior.
The chart has actually a useless z-axis that you can not influence. If it is there or not does not make a difference. However the model correctly reports that the axis is there. Now if you go to a real 3D chart and not just a chart with 3D looks the checkboxes are also enabled.
Markus Mohrhard committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
enable z axis objects when changing chart type, tdf#94290
It will be available in 5.1.0.
