Description Luke 2015-10-26 09:22:23 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open any .docx file containing a chart such as attachment 119957 [details]
2. Edit the chart

Note the Chart sidebar shows is missing some controls, and trying to make changes like series area color does not have any effect.

I have got this messaje on some testing: 
"func=xmlSecCheckVersionExt:file=xmlsec.c:line=188:obj=unknown:subj=unknown:error=19:invalid version:mode=abi compatible;expected minor version=2;real minor version=2;expected subminor version=25;real subminor version=26"

This is the reason I marked them as bibisect bad when this errors appears. 
I could change the color area of the bars on every versions I have tested on 6.1.

This bug is not properly reported with exact steps. "Some" is not a word for reporting. Points to .DOCX without explaining if ODT works, is is a general or import issue. Looks like a duplicate of Bug 116838 that's more clear.

Comment 9 Aron Budea 2021-03-31 03:37:15 UTC
I can clarify this, it's a different bug than bug 116838, that one's somewhat of a visual issue. Having the sidebar open before trying to edit an existing chart avoids it.

Open a DOCX with a chart, and with the sidebar already open, double-click it.
Do the same with an ODT with chart (eg. instert one in Writer, then save and reload it).

=>  For ODT the sidebar switches to chart properties, and for DOCX it doesn't.
On the other hand, the toolbar is the same for both.

Still repro with LO (3e4eb070787d4d44b3bdc95046e5b231dbbef42b) / Ubuntu.

Dear Luke,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
