I hope the attachment is clearer than my initial post to this issue.

When creating a vertical bar chart, the settings for the X-axis and 
Y-axis are correctly associated.

If a horizontal bar chart is created, the associations are reversed - 
all settings for the chart's Y-axis must be entered through the X-axis 
dialogue, and so on.

The labels in the attachment were generated simply by enabling the 
settings in the chart creation dialog without making any text entries.

I hope this is making sense.

Hi Bjoern,

I think this is an old friend of us. Double to an internal one ?

Comment 4 frank 2003-10-23 15:06:19 UTC

Prio and target are false. So I changed them.

->Matthias: Perhaps we should change the names of the axes from "X
axis" to "Category axis" and "Y axis" to "Value axis". Then the
behaviour becomes clear.
I think it wouldn't make sense to use the x axis title for the
value-axis in the horizontal bar chart, because it wouldn't match

->Frank: I am not aware of an 'old friend', but perhaps I didn't
understand this issue corretcly.
