Description vincentpatrick 2003-03-22 07:42:42 UTC
A useful enhancement would be the ability for a user to define specific  default
chart characteristics, such as background colour, gridline properties, chart
type, etc.  Currently it is only possible to alter the general colours used for
default charts.

I take it.
Comment 2 kla 2003-03-27 12:11:47 UTC
It´s not an enhancement, it´s an support request. 
For further information please use only the

Tip: Under Menue-Format-Chart Wall or Chart Area-Tabpage Area you will
find something about background...
Maybe it helps you have a look into the helpsystem.

Dear Thomas,

I apologise for not explaining the issue clearly last time, but it is
not a simple support request.

The issue is to establish new default chart characteristics which will
then ALWAYS appear in a new default chart, not just to modify a
particular chart so that it is different from the default.

I am not interested in support, I am trying to be helpful.

Hi Vincent,
yes, you can beleve you are helpful. But your issue sounds like you
doesn't found the Menue to work on the chart. (So you see you help me
for better understanding by myself.) What are you expected? An
Autopilot, hm it's certain possible. Or what you are mean?

Comment 10 IngridvdM 2005-02-10 18:05:54 UTC
I think this feature would be a great help for users who create many charts
typically. Thanks.

Comment 13 dudson 2007-10-19 17:42:28 UTC
(don't forget color and appearance for grids, axes and raster lines
(Please make different settings for the different types of diagrams)
Comment 14 dudson 2007-10-20 17:23:43 UTC
(I mean that each diagram type has it's own settings.)
Comment 15 dudson 2007-10-28 14:08:55 UTC
issue 82757 is also a duplicate

(Don't forget extra space on xy(z)-axes, make it also customizable in chart
Comment 16 IngridvdM 2007-10-29 09:59:14 UTC
->dudson, issue 82757 is unrelated.
The second thing (customizeable space for axes labels) is a different and new
feature addressed within issue 64705.
Comment 17 IngridvdM 2008-07-22 14:21:29 UTC
reset to new
Comment 18 theradio 2009-05-05 15:10:46 UTC
Yes : either through a dialog, parameters or STYLES (the latest being to me the
most elegant way of doing this concerning fonts and colour attributes).
I vote for this issue...
