Chart styles

    From The Document Foundation Wiki

    "Chart Styles" is an often requested feature to easily assign charts a certain set of styles (colours/pattern of data representation, line width, background colour, charting background, type of legend a.o) to a chart. This is necessary if an author wants to create consistent charts in a publication or if a document aims at different publication format (e.g. coloured charts for online publications, but black&white for print).
