Description Unknown 2003-03-04 22:08:11 UTC
I want to save a spreadsheet chart to an external image file, such as jpg, wmf
or svg.  Whenever I try and save a chart, the dialog box doesn't list any file
type options and trying to save at that point causes an error:
Error saving document Untitled:
Wrong parameter.
The operation was started under an invalid parameter.

This feature is sorely lacking!

A tolerable alternative would be for the Draw component to support a 'shrink
page to fit' option. I am currently pasting my charts into Draw, but I must go
through a silly process to resize the page to the chart before I can export it
in a sane way.

Hm, it seems that the votes got lost due to the component change, hm hm.
There is a newer task also about chart export which has some votes already.
Due to that fact I exceptionally will set this older issue as duplicate to keep
as much votes as possible.
Please add your votes to the other issue to indicate your interest.
Thanks a lot.
Setting duplicate to issue 21588.
