Description Paolo Meozzi 2017-11-28 15:46:31 UTC
Writer applies the vertical border in the middle of the text when there is a style change

Steps to Reproduce:
1.write a text with different styles. (example: a word in automatic color and a word in red color.
2.select the whole text and "character" item in context menù.
3.Apply the vertical borders

Actual Results:  
On the words: "Hello world" ("Hello" in black color, "world" in red color)
a border between the two words appears

Expected Results:
no border is displayed between the two words (but only at the beginning and end of the text)

Reproducible: Always

I confirm it with

I confirm the bug in Writer (Debian Stretch backports). One clue : this only happens in a set of characters AT THE BEGINNING OF A LINE. I noticed this in a document my wife started in Writer 5. See an example in the attachment above.

The bug only occurs for characters at the beginning of a new line.

Version: (x64)

Calc: threaded

One problem remains: There is a little space within the to and bottom border between the two words. But that should be treated as a different bug.
