XY chart with Y-axis auto log scale
Description: ScaleAutomatism::calculateExplicitIncrementAndScaleForLogarithmic function expands Y-axis auto log scale to B^0 (=1) in almost all cases. On a log scale, "1" has no special meaning: it is not the origin, like "0" is on a linear scale.
step 2, more specifically
/* If minimum is less than 5 (i.e. original source values less than
B^5, B being the base of the scaling), or if minimum and maximum
are in different increment intervals (means, if minimum and maximum
are not both in the range [B^n,B^(n+1)] for a whole number n), set
minimum to 0, which results in B^0=1 on the axis. */
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create XY data with Y values between 10^4 and 10^6
2. Create XY chart with Y-axis auto log scale or open attached document
Y-axis starts from 1, which creates an empty space between 1 and 10^4, that is 2/3 of chart area.
Y-axis should start from 10^4
Confirmed with attached document.
