See attached spreadsheet.

The column based data presents good default charts whatever chart type is chosen.

The row based data 'fails' at the pie chart and others.

Manually fixing the data ranges works, but is a pain, and will put off newbies
evaluating OOo

If possible, when the wizard detects and suggests  (first row as label) *and*
not(first column as label), could it be made to default to 'data series in rows'

As the expensive Marketing consultants say, "Every Little Helps", and hopefully
not too difficult.

I agree that this is a major usability issue. I fixed as follows for Charts in Calc:
If only one row with values is selected the ranges are taken from rows,
otherwise from columns. I don't changed anything in Writer. Having a single row
in Writer selected created a Chart from rows already. For further changes open
separate issues please.

@Thomas, please verify in CWS chart29.

One small error: in case of exactly two rows of data and one row as label the
default switches to rows what was not intended here. Thanks Thomas for finding
this with the test tool.

Ok the above small error is fixed now also.
@Thomas, please verify in CWS chart29.
