Description Regina Henschel 2006-11-20 16:52:15 UTC
Open a stock chart, which was generated in OOo2.1, for example use the document,
which is attached to issue 71782.

In the old stock chart you find in that document in the legend the entries
Höchst (means High), Tiefst (means Low) and Schluss (means Close). On import the
new modul sets the data series name "Schluss", which is wrong in content.
(Schluss corresponds to the Candlestick Marker close.) It would be better, to
use a combination of the name "Höchst" and "Low". In the mentioned example the
name should be build from range $D$1:$E$1, which would be right for a legend of
a Candlestick.

->utomo99: Open the example document in issue 71782 with the new chart module
and doubleclick the chart for editing to actualize the view. On the right side
is a picture how it looks in the old chart module.

The old legend entries were not very useful. The idea of the new behavior is to
have one name for the entire series, which usually is the stock symbol (like
SUNW). As Close is the most important sequence needed by all stock types, we
chose that sequence as the one holding the name.

I think it doesn't make much sense to have the words "Open, Close, Min and Max"
in the legend. Also having "Open High Low Close" as one string seems not very
informative to me. The graphics should make clear what they represent. If you
want to explain what the minimum is, like "the minimum number of events that
were measured", you would either need some separate text with that explanation,
or we would need a legend symbol showing the minimum value to make clear what
this text belongs to.
