Description IngridvdM 2009-09-03 09:46:10 UTC
A new chart type is wanted similar to the area chart. In contrast to the current
area chart where the  x axis is a category axis with equidistant values the new
chart type should allow for real x values like known from the XY-Scatter chart type.
This issue originates from issue 104250.

Would this explain why the x-axis is always scaled incorrectly and cannot be changed, or would that be a separate issue?

That is exactly this issue. The x axis for current area charts is not scaled. The y-values are displayed just one after the other. If text is provided e.g. in the first column/row they can be used as labels for the axis (categories).
With OOo 3.4 Beta I have implemented date axes (see issue 25706). So in case of date values the x axis should be scalable then.
