This might be a bonehead problem. I have a line chart displaying a column of

Moving Average trend line. But I'd like to do a Polynomial trend line, and
can't figure out how to make it display. It looks like it wants more

You should not need to specify the low and high bound. You only need a
reasonable "order". If you have n data points the order should be at
most n-1. Otherwise there is no curve to plot.

Thank you, where do I specify the order? For example, for trend line 
type Logarithmic -- one of the trend line types that does not plot a 
curve -- I see "Title," and the aforementioned High and Low Bound fields 
available for data entry.

Please file a sample file showing your problem at as
a bug against Gnumeric. Which version of Gnuemric are you using?

For a polynomial regression line at the bottom of the tab with low and
high bound there should be an 'order' item.

For logarithmic curves there is of course no 'order' item but you will
not get a logarithmic trend line if one of the x-values is negative.
Since under those circumstances, the logarithmic trend model cannot


I think this will go out as plain text. Do we bottom-post on this list?
