The only way I can make a full page chart - which I use constantly - is to continuously fiddle with print ranges, Print Preview, and dragging and repositioning chart and margins to fit the whole page. Excel does this in one click with the option to save a chart to a new sheet. Is this option patented? Is there some other reason why it is missing from LO?

There is a fdo#45893 on Bugzilla as an enhancement for LO. Please check it out and vote for the enhancement. Also Lotus 123 has the same feature like Excel for around 20 years.

Just to clarify, fdo#45893 is "PRINTING: add feature to print charts". It doesn't include the feature to save a chart as a new sheet by itself (which we should probably file as another enhancement. See: http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/11775/how-can-i-put-a-chart-on-a-separate-sheet-in-calc

Making the chart big enough and create a page style with the Sheet - Scale - Scaling Mode to "Fit print range(s) on number of pages" to 1. Always adjust the chart to a page.

This is a good workaround until fdo#45893 is resolved
