Why don't entire Calc charts copy and paste into anything?

Details:

I made a chart with some spreadsheet data in Calc. I can select and copy the actual line-chart area into a Writer, but I cannot copy the entire chart with the legends and other information; it pastes in as a blank box.

I tested using Gimp. Copying the entire chart including the legends and trying to control-shift-V in Gimp gives this message:

"There is no image data in the clipboard to paste."

How to reproduce:

  1. Create chart.
  2. Add legends.
  3. Right-click OUTSIDE the area of the lines/bars/whatever to select the entire chart box.
  4. Select "Copy".
  5. Attempt to paste elsewhere.
