Description wsblackhole 2018-04-30 19:56:32 UTC
Description:
After upgrading to LibreOffice 6.0.x, Writer is unable to produce page borders that are more than a single line. I have tried adding a new double-line page border, but Writer only produces a single line. I also tried opening an old document that previously had a double-border, but in that case I get multiple lines, but they don't line up and lack spacing between them.

Format -> Page -> Borders -> Line Style = any double line option

Steps to Reproduce:
Format -> Page -> Borders -> Line Style = any double line option

Actual Results:  
Single-line page border

Expected Results:
Double-line page border


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

Seems to be fine, if you disable OpenGL.

I tried to test without OpenGL. However, there is no option for OpenGL in the menu (I looked under Tools ▸ Options ▸ LibreOffice ▸ View) on my system (v 6.0.3.2 on Linux). I restarted in safe mode and confirmed that the problem persisted.

Tools => Options => LibreOffice => View => Disable "Use OpenGL for all rendering"

Hmm, with OpenGL rendering enabled, I do get the double lines. But the drop list previews are invisible until I increase the size of the Width field >= ~4.0 pt from its default .05 pt.

I also had to check on the User defined "Line Arrangment" to actually show all four borders.

That option does not appear for me. In fact, the word "OpenGL" does not appear anywhere under that menu for me. Under Graphic Output on that menu, I have options for "Use hardware acceleration" and "Use anti-aliasing," but that's it. I've seen images posted online of OpenGL options appearing right below those for others, but it doesn't for me.

See screenshot of dialog. If yours is different and OpenGL-Option is missing, you perhaps should file a new bug report about it

And here is a screenshot of the dialog box that I see without any OpenGL options.

Images of borders before and after upgrade

Here are some screenshots of the error in three parts:

Top example: Double-line page border as seen in LibreOffice 5.x.

Middle example: Double-line page border from document created in LibreOffice 5.x, but opened in LibreOffice 6.x.

Bottom example: New document in LibreOffice 6.x failing to create double-line page border.

(The page margins were wider in the final example, which is why it appears smaller. This is just laziness on my part and doesn't reflect anything related to the problem.)

Since I don't use Linux I can't say, if this is intended or not. I think you should open a new bug report about it (haven't checked, if such a report already exists).
