Confirmed on Windows build
Version: (x64)

Locale: en-US (en_US); Calc: CL

The listbox of border styles do not receive tool tip/descriptions.


With local help installed and extended tips checked enabled. The widgets (Calc & Writer) take Paragraph help articles:


But the LB in the Borders tab of the Paragraph dialog do not have any annotation describing the line (or its bitmap) exposed to the UI
