I think I had requested this quite a while ago, but some foundation work was lacking at that time and it was postponed to later. I believe everything that is needed is in place now, but I don't actually think I went as far as making a bugzilla entry (at least I can't find it any longer), so here it is...

A very professional touch to kst would be to allow auto-updating of axis names based on plot contents. My proposal would be to replace the "Auto label" button in the plot dialog->Appearance tab with a checkbox. If the user makes a manual entry in one of the X or Y label lineedits, the checkbox would be unchecked. When checked, any change in contents or curve definition (e.g. X vector used) would trigger an axis label update.
