Hi Patrick,

Remarks on the 15.31.3 are well taken...

With the help of the chart developers, I was able to get some 

For 3D Cartesian coordinate systems we need to indicate whether they 
should be left handed or right handed as both variants are widely used.
OpenOffice.org uses left handed systems for 3D charts per default:

y max
|         z max
|       /
|    /
| /
xyz min------x max

Chart properties are applied in the following order:
By default the coordinate systems are constructed as described above. 
When the chart's chart:vertical style property is set to true, the x and 
y axes are swapped. After this, the chart:reverse-direction style 
property is applied to individual axes.

|  zmax

|  zmax

vertical=true AND y-axis specifies reverse-direction=true
|  zmax
