Description jkonecn 2002-06-20 16:02:42 UTC
There doesn't appear to be any way to print/preview a chart independently of the sheet.   This would allow you to have a bunch of charts 
anywhere on the sheet and print them without a load of formatting to get them to fit a page.

Comment 2 eric.savary 2003-04-16 15:38:16 UTC

Comment 4 falko.tesch 2003-10-06 12:48:47 UTC
Add the menu entry "Print" to OLE obejects context menu. This should
allow to print each OLE object independent from its master document.
Comment 5 jkonecn 2003-10-20 14:28:05 UTC
Would the "Print" feature that you are proposing adding to the ole
objects context menu feature allow for "print preview" and "fit to page"?

Sorry I placed that attachment (ooowriter.jpg) on the wrong issue.  I'd delete

Ok, thanks Bettina, but have to give this issue to the framework people, because
I can not or should not implemented it for chart only I think.
-> Mathias, please take over, thanks.

Comment 16 Mathias_Bauer 2006-06-23 13:12:02 UTC
changing target - seems to be a very useful feature that shouldn't be so hard to

In most cases it should be enough to print the replacement image we have anyway.

Comment 20 Mathias_Bauer 2008-04-24 17:33:06 UTC

Comment 21 mikhail.voytenko 2008-12-03 08:13:32 UTC
Taking the task and setting the target to 3.x for now.
Comment 22 sparus 2008-12-05 14:45:51 UTC
I print just a single chart many times a day. It would be nice if it was less
time consuming. A right-click option would be ideal
Comment 23 keithchanning 2009-02-03 15:45:09 UTC
This issue is the only reason I still use Excel for anything.
Comment 24 2009-03-18 10:42:55 UTC
New standalone issues to handle chart and starmath are opened in issue 100298
and issue 100299 respectively, summary changed to general OLE purpose.
Comment 25 vighnahara 2010-10-25 17:23:06 UTC
I can't believe this issue has been open for 8 years. It seems like such a simple 
feature to implement, and it's the single missing function preventing my complete 
switch to OpenOffice. I need to print 5-10 full page graphs each week for lab 
reports, and it's just too much fuss and bother to copy, paste, resize, adjust 
page formatting, etc. for each one.

> I can't believe this issue has been open for 8 years.
I'll second that! Of course it's now been open for 9 years, 2 months and 6 days. Astounding. This is one of those little issues that makes M$ office seem more professional than OOo, we really must get this fixed very soon.
Comment 27 2012-02-10 14:49:40 UTC
Being the originator of this request and due to the seemingly demise of OOo, I have entered this feature request at the LibreOffice bugzilla.  Please create a user there (if you haven't already) and attach yourself to the request.  It is very likely that nothing will happen to this request here at apache.

Reset assigne to the default "".
