Description Roeland 2016-06-27 17:56:40 UTC
The border menu behind format cells is behaving a bit oddly:
Steps to reproduce:

1: Select some cells in calc
2: rightclick on your selection and click on "format cells"
3: navigate to the "borders" menu
4: pick line arrangement and select "outer borders only"; this creates some lines at "user defined", change the thickness of those lines to 2 pt
5: now click on the middle of "userd defined" to create some inner lines
6: change the thickness of the inner lines to 1 pt
7: if you now select one of the outer border lines, the thickness of those lines is automaticly adjjusted to one

Expected behavior: when selecting one of the lines, the thickness is the one that was chosen for that line before

Hi Roeland,

thanks for writing here.

> that was chosen for that line before

Question: why would you/someone click the position of a line that is already set?

Ciao - Cor

Hi Cor, in short: for maximum flexibility and usability.

For example:

If I change my mind about thickness and want to change something while this dialog is still open.

If I made a mistake and want to correct this.

If I simply want to know which line thickness I chose before.

Thanks Roeland for your explanation!
I expect there are more use cases, including other attributes..

So UXEval.

Maybe it's good for people to comment to play around with various scenarios.
Of course this beside explaining your own favorite work-flow ;)

I think this behavior is expected. What you define in the middle is taken for the next operation.
