Is it possible to create chart legends without use of color for b&w only publications?

I would like to create charts with legends based on filling pattern instead of colors for printing only in black and white. Does libreoffice do it?

Here you can choose a pattern. When making a selection, each time make sure to select a Foreground and Background color. On my system, if not selected each time results were not as wanted.
