Description Frank 2018-03-11 19:04:39 UTC
Sometimes text is well ordered in tables. I like text to start at the beginning of the table, especially with a thin black lower cell-border.

When i have text with no indent in the cell and switch the lower line from unvisible to thin black, the text gets indented by 1 mm or so. This happens on both ends.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. write text in a table
2. make sure there is no padding
3. make the lower line visible black

Actual Results:  
the text gets indented by 1 mm

Expected Results:
make the lower line black, nothing else

Reproducible: Always

I confirm this with

Version: (x64)
Build ID: d64ce643275e0b2b0dea9e532fc261391dc8793c
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: GL; 
TinderBox: Win-x86_64@42, Branch:master, Time: 2018-03-01_03:24:30
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); Calc: CL

Steps to reproduce

1. write text in a table
2. make sure there is no padding
3. make the lower line visible black
4. text gets intended by 1mm on all sides
5. set cursor within the text => open table properties => padding shows 0,00cm
6. mark the whole cell => open table properties => padding shows 0,1cm

Perhaps there is a reason why there is a difference between setting a curos in the cell and mark the cell, but I dont understand it.

(In reply to Dieter Praas from comment #2)
> setting a curos
setting the cursor
Comment 4 Frank 2018-03-11 22:53:31 UTC
Thank you, at least a workaround,.
The second point is also responsible for having trouble with changing the attributes on columns. LibreOffice is at this point a bit clumsy, compared to MS-Office

It is, indeed. But i won't change the status at this moment.
Comment 7 Frank 2019-03-12 10:04:35 UTC
To be clear: 
the padding is no more 0,10 cm, it jumps to 0,05 instead, but i can change it to 0,00.
