Description sven_ww 2005-11-24 21:27:35 UTC

in my opinion the dialog for autoformatting charts could be improved, especially
the page where the user can choose between different chart-types.

1) Make it possible to resize the dialog, so you may see all of the types at once.

2) Show a short description of the chart-type beside the icon. If you don't
know, it's very hard to get a x-y-chart, so in past I thought this is
impossible. because the icon shows dots what I do not associate with x-y-charts.
(See attached image and Issue 14784, where the user had the same problem)

3) what about a "real" x-y-chart with a axes-cross (in the middle) and arrows at
the top/right of the axes? The cross might be a good icon, too. 
Like this one:

I miss this type for mathematic/scientific charts.

Thanks a lot, Sven

The rebuild of all Autoformat Chart Dialog for the new Chart Module is nearly
done. See Spec. Also i26537 deal with some parts of it.

This issue is a duplicate to Issue 20344 not to Issue 26537.

Issue 20344 is about simplifying the creation of charts. A new Wizard
(Autoformat Dialog) is one part of that issue.
If you like you can have a look at the specification (under construction) for
the new creation process and a new Wizard at .
Chapter 6 contains some screenshots of the new Wizard. The main charttypes are
now listed with a small icon and a text. Line charts and XY charts are listed as
neighbours so it will be much more unlikely that you will overlook the one or
the other.
Comments are welcome in Issue 20344.

By the way please do put only one task in one Issue. Thanks a lot.
