I feel that sheet-graphs are limited right now and I have a few
suggestions for improving them:
- define a page format

- allow resizing of the graphs
- allow sheet objects (line, rectangle, etc.)

What do you think?
If you want all these features why don't you just leave the graph on an
empty regular sheet?

(Of course I don't understand the use for these graph-only sheets
anyways if you can just have a sheet with only a graph.)

I think that gnumeric is wonderful, but I don't think that it needs to do everything. I often use it to provide independent lists of the data points for graphs that will be combined in a general-purpose graphing program -- I use gnuplot.

Items like "page format", "multiple graphs on one page" and "resizing of the graphs" are features of a page description tool. I use TeX to typest the descriptions and import the graphs. I have also used gnumeric to format the TeX instructions to build a table.

The quoted suggestion is that you use new sheets in gnumeric to organize your graphs, but modern desktop environments allow easy cooperation between all programs on your computer (or maybe even in the cloud) so getting the data to a tool that you use comfortably may be better than trying to teach another program to emulate that tool.
