ODF New Proposal Template


Proposal owner:

Doug Mahugh

Proposal short name:

data-label-series attributes


Use cases:

While current drafts of ODF 1.2 provide many  enhancements to the data labels on charts, one common data label content type is still missing.  Users frequently want to label data points with the name of the corresponding series.  This can allow for the elimination of legend in some scenarios and also provides quick reference to a data point.

Alternatives considered:

 The chart:data-label-text attribute could be modified to support multiple options as attribute values.

Requested changes to the ODF Standard

Text changes/additions (please state section numbers):

      <ref name="boolean"/>
