so it should be fixed in at least 4.3.0. We are shipping newer versions,
thus marking as fix released.

  Bad validation on Scales box on Axis (chart properties)

Status in LibreOffice Productivity Suite:
  Fix Released
Status in libreoffice package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  1) lsb_release -rd
  Description:	Ubuntu quantal (development branch)
  Release:	12.10

  2) apt-cache policy libreoffice-calc
    Installed: 1:3.6.1~rc2-1ubuntu5
    Candidate: 1:3.6.1~rc2-1ubuntu5
    Version table:
   *** 1:3.6.1~rc2-1ubuntu5 0
          500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal/main i386 Packages
          100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

  3) What is expected to happen in a terminal:
  cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/1026356/+attachment/3227705/+files/GraphExample.ods && localc --nologo GraphExample.ods

  1. Double click on the graph
  2. Right click on the y-axis > Format Axis
  3. Select the Scale tab
  4. Uncheck Automatic for any of the values and try enter a number (You must change the value).
  5. Click OK and it works.

  4) What happens instead is you will see an error message stating that
  numbers are required.

  These are the steps I used to create the sample spreadsheet:

  1. Create new spreadsheet
  2. In column A write the numbers 1 to 5 on rows 1 to 5.
  3. In column B write the numbers 1 to 5 on rows 1 to 5.
  4. Select all the numbers > Format > Cells.
  5. In the Numbers tab select "Text" under the list of Categories.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Click the chart button (with the numbers still selected)
  8. Select an XY scatter graph (I've tested with "points-only" and "points with lines")
  9. Click Finish. You now have a graph that gives the error message when trying to change the scale.
