Description marcel.auffret 2016-10-19 18:11:17 UTC
You can change the color of the underline a misspelling.
But it stressed too late and barely visible to those who do not have very good eyes ...
Is it possible to increase the fat that ripple?
Thank you.
(traduction google...)
In French :
Il est possible de changer la couleur du soulignement d'une faute d'orthographe.
Mais ce souligné est trop fin et à peine visible pour ceux qui n'ont pas de très bon yeux...
Est-il possible d'augmenter la graisse de cette ondulation ?

edited summary notes.
as far as I know the "squiggly red underline" has always been the same thickness since OOo era.

this is enhancement request. maybe an advanced configuration option could be added to set an higher thickness value for it.

status -> NEW

this report has existed since 2016 with the status NEW.
In addition, there is a report in which the problem should be fixed.

The problem still exists, especially with larger monitor resolutions, the wavy line is difficult to see.
Unfortunately, neither in my current LibreOffice Version: (x64) Version nor in this version:

Version: + (x64)
Build ID: 15988fe00c4f49ae32ab2d5cf3c16495ab6e1d59
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 19041; UI render: Skia / Raster; VCL: win
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI: de-DE
Calc: CL

a possibility to adjust the line width of the red wavy line.

Also searched the expert settings and couldn't find an option.

1. Is there already a solution?
2. What do I have to do to change the line thickness?
3. Are you working on it?
