Preview of color overflow in OLE
I would like to submit a feature request: adding the possibility to have cell styles for text tables in Writer - with background color support - like there exists in Calc; along with "Paragraph styles", "Character styles", etc.
I often need to format some cells in my reports, and it has to be consistent throughout it. Currently, for this, I need to select the cells individually (or by group if they are adjacent) and then setting formatting parameters.
The main problem I have is with cells background color: if I don't select the whole cell, that's only the paragraph background which is modified. I also have to remember which color I assigned to which value to keep consistent in my whole document.
For these tasks, having cell styles would be much more productive.
I know that there's the possibility of including a Calc table, in which I can use cell styles, but the result is not satisfying, as background colors often overflows in adjacent cells (see attachment).
Such styles should be usable anywhere cells are used - e.g. in Calc too obviously, the same (or similar) styles dialogues and features should be available. This seems to be dup.
