Border line style

P.S. My English is not excellent, sorry for that. Attached picture can explain my suggestion better.

In Calc, if we click “Border Style” option on “Formatting Toolbar”, a window as in the picture is opened. On the picture, I marked the options in the window with numbers.

- In the window, the line marked with (1) seems more thicker than the line marked with (2). But when we apply the line (2), we are going to see that the line (2) is more thicker than the line (1).

- Among the options, there is one more line same as the line (2).

- Among the options, there are five more lines same as the line marked with (3). And all of them are giving meaningless results.

- The other options in the window are not giving meaningful results, too.

There is a similar situation with “Borders” tab in “Format Cells” window. In this tab, when we click “Line Style” option we are encountering with completely different contents.

I had to first enable borders from Format cells to be able to change them from the dropdown.

There is a button in the interface and it has not worked for years! Yes the bug continues.

The main mistake is to mark this bug as minor.

I tried it on two operating systems.
