Description Luke 2015-10-11 23:32:12 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. In calc create a Line chart or use attachment 119527 [details]
2. Edit the chart
3. Click on one of the lines
4. Modify chart panels -> Line -> beginning or ending Arrowhead

Either it should add an arrow head to the Line or the 2 arrowhead UI elements should be removed. 

The data series -> Line dialog box does not give any options to add arrowheads. Also I don't think it's a common use case to need arrow heads in charts, so it's probably safe to remove the 2 UI elements.

UX needed here.
Comment 2 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-10-12 12:32:27 UTC
No UX needed as the dialog doesnt have facilities to add arrows to the ends of a line, so the arrowhead drop downs should either be hidden or disabled.

Created attachment 119925 [details]

Would be better for the arrow controls to be disabled rather than hidden, as it leaves space on the left and right.
