[Solved] Chart/Graph is lost

Postby det » Tue Dec 05, 2017 3:01 am

I have to record medical conditions daily and present them graphically. This worked fine until 2 days ago. Now all I get is an empty frame, I mean empty, nothing in it.
Luckily I had saved the calc sheet PDRec.ods a few days earlier on a USB stick. I renamed PDRec to PDRecgood on the stick and dragged it to the mac. Opened it and again empty frame. Did I play around with some control without knowing what I'm doing? Can somebody help?

Just ran an experiment: Created a chart in a calc sheet, saved it and closed it. When I re-open the chart is gone, just that empty frame. Det

There is a bug (regression} in AOO 4.1.4. It is fixed in the developer version of AOO 4.1.5.
Until it is released go back to AOO 4.1.3

Thanks Larry, back to 4.1.3 and everything works! That really gave me a scare.

Is it because Tools (Preferences in Mac?) > Options > OpenOffice Writer > View > Display ..., has been unticked? If so, ticking it should fix it.

Sorry, I am in calc not writer. See my post. Perhaps you should redirect to writer.
Thank you anyway. Det

My apologies - I meant Tools (Preferences in Mac?) > Options > OpenOffice Calc > View > Objects > Charts.

John,
As i stated in my previous post, this is a known Mac specific bug in AOO 4.1.4. A developer version has fixed the regression.

John, I had tried your suggestion before with show and hide. It couldn't work because of the bug. Det

Indeed ... but for others searching with other releases it can presumably also be caused by setting View > Charts ..., to OFF.

But this is a Mac specific issue caused by a regression.
The problem had already been resolved.
This is on a Mac specific part of this forum.
