Description Marisano James 2015-12-12 03:23:46 UTC
Created attachment 121236 [details]
Example Calc file with y-error bars

Steps to reproduce the bug.

1.Open a Calc document containing a chart with an error bar thereon. (See Example_data.ods, for a ready-made file.)
2. Double-click on the chart to select it.
3. Select "... Error Bars" from the "Select Chart Element" drop down menu (it appears in the upper left hand corner of the main window).
4. Click on the "Format Selection" button to the right of the drop down menu (the cube icon). A dialog box will appear.
5. Click on the "Line" tab in that dialog box.
6. Type a non-zero integer into the "Transparency:" Edit Field, or use the up arrow to select one.

Calc will crash.

On pc Debian x86-64 with LO Debian package 5.0.4RC1, I don't reproduce this.
On which LO version are you?

Hello Julien,

Sorry, I meant to report that. I'm using LO version (what was then the latest Fresh release). Would the Build ID be helpful?

Comment 3 Marisano James 2015-12-14 02:52:29 UTC
Also occurs in version (I don't have 5.0.4 installed yet.)
Comment 4 Marisano James 2015-12-14 03:40:24 UTC
Does not occur each time transparency is applied in version That is, you can instantiate the error bars dialog, select a transparency level, and have it applied successfully. However, sometimes it still fails. One way I have gotten it to do so is to ask for a transparency level, say 50%, and then immediately ask for it again. If Calc will not crash initially, open the program anew and reapply transparency.

Plz try 5.1.x.

Backtrace per comment 5 would be super.

Change back to UNCONFIRMED, if the problem persists. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if the problem went away.
