Description tuharsky 2007-12-10 09:01:43 UTC
In 2.0.4, it has been possible to double click on chart's title and edit.
In 2.3 it is no longer possible. Try to edit title of any chart in the testcase

Comment 6 IngridvdM 2008-02-13 16:29:40 UTC
added me to CC and added IME to 'summary'
Comment 7 IngridvdM 2008-03-13 16:53:09 UTC
CWS chart23 does contain several bug fixes around asian font settings in charts.
It is likely that this problem is fixed there, maybe someone could check.

I am also having this issue with the Chinese IME.
Comment 9 amy2008 2008-10-07 06:59:11 UTC
Reproduce it in OOo300m8 on WinXP.
Can't input Chinese characters when editing chart title.

sba->iha: As seen, the chart2 implementation seems to have caused this. To
 - Win XP with IME activated (I tried Japanese, input mode "Hiragana")
 - Have a document with a chart
 - Select the chart
 - [Via Chart main menu] Insert -Title
 - Fill some fields with IME, (input works fine in dialog as well as in chart
 - Click OK
[See that the chart gets the correct Japanese title (or subtitle, x-axis...)
=> Charts with CJK text can be created correctly.
 - Select the title within the chart (double-click)
 - [see that deleting characters works]
-> Try some IME input - it does NOT work
-> Paste from clipboard (context or <Ctrl>-V in Western key input) does not work
Set OS to "All", adjusted summary, put TL on c/c.
Reassigned to IHA.
Comment 11 stefan.baltzer 2008-10-07 10:52:00 UTC
SBA: The WORKAROUND for this is to use the title dialog:
 - Have the chart selected
 - via menu - Edit - Title
-> The title dialog comes up and in there,  the fields (Title, Subtitle,
Axis...) can be edited via IME. 
Comment 12 IngridvdM 2008-10-07 11:00:49 UTC
@weiz, please have a look. As discussed on IRC start the research at
ChartController::StartTextEdit(). I guess that we need to do something to the
here used SdrOutliner.

@TL, as you are the edit engine specialist, do you have an initial idea what we
might have missed when using the edit engine here?

A workaround for the users:
You can use the menu while in chart edit mode: Insert->Title ... In the opening
dialog you can enter all titles within an edit box and here the IME method does
work properly.

It is very strange that I cannot attach the patch to this issue. :-( 
Do anybody on the CC list know how to solve this problem? Thanks in advance!

Comment 17 IngridvdM 2009-01-14 12:46:56 UTC
@weiz, thanks the patch works fine! :-).
I commited to CWS chart35.
Comment 18 IngridvdM 2009-01-19 15:28:54 UTC
@Kla, please verify in CWS chart35. Thanks!
To test on windows for example:
1)Add japanese keyboard here:
start->control panel->regional and language options->Languages->Details...
->Settings->Installed Services
2)start and enable support for Asian languages:
Tools->Options->Language Settings->Languages->Enable for Asian languages
3)Restart Office
4)Start Office, create a chart. insert a title, double click a title
5) In windows taskbar select the Japanese keyboard and input style 'Hiragana'
for example
6)Type for example hiragana into the title -> You should see some Asian characters
