The cell selection box hides borders, making it hard to know what needs editing.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open attached spreadsheet
2. click on Cell E6 to select it
3. repeat in Microsoft Excel 2010
Calc's selection box hides the cell borders; Excel's selection box changes intelligently so that the user can always see all the attributes of the cell selected for editing.
First, do no harm. Calc should always be at least as user-friendly as Excel. It's not a very high bar.

The color of the selection lines adapts a bit (to some dark gray) in 3.3.0
I bet there will be variations on OS, graphic drivers etc..

I was only able to find 184.108.40.206.alpha1 - can you give me a link to 220.127.116.11.alpha0+?
On the same topic, underscores are also obscured by the selection box (and there's a bug that I can't pin down that involves underscoring and superscripting suddenly being applied to characters that shouldn't have underscores.
I installed 18.104.22.168 in hopes that this is the version you meant, but the bug (and ALL my other bugs!) are still present in that version.

As far as I know, it's not that a newer version magically solves all bugs and so :p

Which one is right for Windows 7? There are quite a few files labeled 5-30. I'm not an engineer and have no idea what the abbreviations on these nightly builds mean. I was a professional tester for 15 years (I have no technical training whatsoever but they kept me around because I'm very good at finding bugs) and I use only the formatting part of Calc exclusively, full time, 7 days a week, and am passionately interested in improving it (and miserably unhappy about its current state - if you could see me toiling away at this program, working around the same cripping bugs over and over and over I think you'd feel a greater sense of urgency about the formatting aspects of this program. From my perspective, the house is on fire and all you guys are doing is measuring for new drapes).
