Description cns 2005-10-13 10:17:10 UTC
Until a few days ago, I didn't think there was any way of altering your source data cells once you'd created a chart. I've now worked out that if you single-click on the chart, then you can right-click on the chart to get "Modify Data Range", but if you double-click and go into the chart editing mode and then right-click, the option is nowhere to be seen, in spite of plenty of related options being available, such as changing the chart type. I would have expected all these options to be together in one place, and if this confused me, it's going to confuse Openoffice newbies even more. This is a minor issue, but it is minor issues such as these that cause prospective Openoffice users to give up after one attempt claiming it's too difficult.

It's not a defect it's an (EaseofUse) enhancement.

This issue is already fixed within the chart reimplementation. If you like you can download a current developer snapshot build from the OpenOffice.org Chart website: http://graphics.openoffice.org/chart/chart.html. There is a specification available for the new menu structure at: http://specs.openoffice.org/chart/menus/MenuStructure.odt. The new dialog inside chart to specify the dataranges is specified here: http://specs.openoffice.org/chart/dataselection/FlexibleSourceRangeSelection.sxw.
