I have just downloaded OOo2, and I seem to be missing the obvious in trying to make a chart.

I am choosing Insert | Chart which gives me a dialog box called "autoformat chart" with a field to insert a range, but there is nothing else in the dialog box.

So even when the range information is entered, there is nowhere to click OK or indeed do anything.

The tutorial I found suggests that this dialog box should contain some options beyond the single field that allows you to enter the range.

This is on WIN2000 SP4

Have I missed the obvious, or is there a problem here.

Many thanks,

Graham

It sounds to me as if there is a problem there. This is what I get when I do Insert >Chart
http://ca.geocities.com/jrkrideau/images/chart.png . Does it look anything like what you are getting?

Thanks

Same sized dialog box but the only thing in it is the range field, the rest is just grey.

Actually, it is now also crashing when I choose the help on the menu.

I think I will try re-installing it.

Well a re-install seems to have fixed this, I also now have icons on the tool bar, on the previous install, I only had word descriptions on the toolbars and no icons.

I did think this rather odd, but thought this was maybe how OOo did it.

So for whaterver the resaon, it seems I had a faulty install.

Thanks for your help,

Graham
