I'm using OOo Calc 1.1.2 on Gentoo Linux.

I've created some charts from data on Sheet1 and placed each on its own sheet (Sheet2, Sheet3, etc.). I need to edit the data, but Calc won't let me. When I double-click on a chart to edit it, the Chart Data button and the item under the Edit menu remain grayed out.

Why can't I edit my chart data?

You have to select the graph (green handles) then right-click for menu and choose "Graph Data..." (or the like). Difficult part is to select the right part of the chart object, not only a single bar/line/x-beam...

Doesn't work on the 2.0 Beta

Way to go nimrods!

Yeah, I sound like a troll but I'm not. I'm just incredibly frustrated by these guys. How am I supposed to promote this stuff when this has been going on since Sept. of last year and nobody is doing squat about it.

Which Beta version are you using?
Have you looked at issuezilla - maybe it's an already identified bug. Maybe it's new: somebody (=> you, for example) has to enter it.

Remember: it's a beta, not all things supposed to work correctly.
And please remember: a BIG part of OOo's work is done by volunteers.

I'm using the latest beta.

I thought that 75% of the developers were paid by Sun. At least that is what I read in yesterday's news article and it would also explain how so much java got into the source code.
