Description Regina Henschel 2006-12-09 22:41:01 UTC
Open an impress document, select slide layout chart+title, double-click to enter
your data. You get a column chart with dummy data.
Now try to make a stock chart. You get a lot of problems.

A
Goal: stock chart type 1 (low-high-close)
Click on “Data Type†and select “Stock†variant 1, Finish.
View chart data table and enter your values. Finish.
Problem: You get a secondary axis.

B
Goal: stock chart type 3 (volume-low-high-close)
Click on “Data Type†and select “Stock†variant 3, Finish.
Problem: All data columns are gone.
Workaround: First add a column and enter the data, then change chart type from
column to stock variant 3.

C
Goal: Change stock type 1 to 3 or stock type 2 to 4
First try: first change chart type, then add column.
Same problem as in “Bâ€, the data columns are gone.

D
Goal: Change stock type 1 to 3 or stock type 2 to 4
Second try: first add column, then change chart type.
View chart data table and click on “insert columnâ€.
Problem: You don't get a single column, but a new data series, with messed up
roles or you get a new volume column.
Workaround: Change chart to column chart, add the open-column, change chart type
back to stock variant.

Suggestion: If user changes chart type and there are not enough data columns,
add a data column with dummy values. If it is a change within stock variants,
then keep the already given roles.

Right, this is really not very user friendly.
Comment 3 IngridvdM 2007-01-18 11:53:04 UTC
changed target to 2.3
Comment 4 bjoern.milcke 2007-03-06 17:05:06 UTC
I improved the interpretation of the existing sequences in a better way, but it
is still not optimal. E.g. switching from variant 4 to 2 (removing the volume)
leads to shifting the roles around.

Adding new sequences is difficult, as changing the chart type is the same dialog
for charts in Calc, where you cannot add sequences.

We should fix this more generally.
