Ticket #3781 (closed defect: fixed)
Excel chart labels clipped
|Reported by:||claudeM||Owned by:|
Like already mentionned by a post on the forum a year ago http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=5130,
I experience clipped y labels in Excel 2003 graphs under VirtualBox (see my example at http://cern.ch/info-100km/vbox/excel-chart.pdf).
As I use Mac Osx Leopard host and Vbox 2.1.0, as opposed to zenwalk 5.0, 22.214.171.124 and VirtualBox 1.5.6 for the OP in the forum post, I guess the "bug" is rather in the Vbox Windows XP guest additions, specifically Vbox display drivers.
Like if Excel is using a rare and not supported feature in Vbox to draw the y labels. But that is pure supputation from my part, I leave the expert finding out.
This bug does not prevent me to nicely run Vbox on my Macbook Pro to virtualize Windows XP, but requires that I reboot with bootcamp into XP whenever I want to do extensive work with Excel. Annoying. And Excel 2008 for Mac is so slow ;(
