Description tom_flowers 2010-09-16 12:53:30 UTC
Chart Axis Label Order not saved on program shutdown and defaults to "Tile" 
setting when restarted.  Other settings are "Stagger Odd", "Stagger Even", 
and "Automatic".  

To access the Chart Axis Label Order I double click on the chart, right click 
on the axis, select format axis from the pop-up menu and then select one of the 
displayed options.  I have the labels set at 65 degrees, which is saved and 
need not be reset. I select "Stagger odd" or "Stagger Even" so the labels are 
readable and do not overlap and save the file.  When the program is shutdown 
and restarted the Label Order is set to "Tile" and must be reset to the 
Staggered setting.

Comment 3 kla 2010-09-20 08:37:54 UTC
sorry can't reproduce. Pls attach the doc and give a more detailed step by step
description. Also it will be nice if you try to reproduce the behavior within a
current developer snapshot.
Comment 4 tom_flowers 2010-09-20 13:24:37 UTC
I neglected to mention that saved format is .xls...  
I don't see a way to upload to the site and I'm not familiar with "current 
developer snapshots" or where to find them.  If there is a URL where I can 
learn about them, it would be helpful.  
I have a 452kB file that shows the issue.  I can reduce the size more if

Attached XLS file with chart to show issue.  
1. Open file, 2. observe x-axis labels are overlapped and unreadable. 3. Double 
click on chart bars, 4. Right click on x-axis, 5. Select <Format Axis...>, 6. 
Select <Label>, 7. Select <Order-Stagger Odd>, 8. Deselect <Textflow-Overlap> 
9. Select <Okay>, 10. Observe x-axis labels are alternated, not overlapped and 
are readable. 11. Save File 12. Goto step 1 and repeat.

I am sorry, but the xls format is not capable of this feature (as far as I
know). So it is not possible to save that settings.
Comment 8 IngridvdM 2010-09-29 16:45:46 UTC
Closing issue impossible to fix. Sorry.
Comment 9 tom_flowers 2010-09-30 13:37:24 UTC
You could actually fix the issue by making the default to have the Overlapped 
selection unchecked.  This would be desireable as a nonoverlapped condition 
would be preferred by most users and the overlapped condition would be used in 
only special circumstances.  I can't think on any at the moment.  Perhaps an 
overlapped selection is not needed.  I know of at least one instance where this 
is the case.
