The two-column table in .odt (with some stuff before and after the table)

1. Create a 2-column table with one row.
2. Set outer border only.
3. Fill something in.
4. Save as .odt
5. Save as .docx.
6. Reopen the two files. The .odt reopens correctly, while the .docx reopens with an extra (unneeded) vertical line -- column divider.

My results were a bit different. The docx. does have the vertical line. However, the .odt file has a vertical line that is light gray, sort of a disabled look. I have attached a screenshot of this when tested in 6.2; however, it occurred in both of the following builds.

No vertical line on my end (Mac 10.9.5).

Confirm the "extra (unneeded) vertical line -- column divider"

add to comment4

saving the document as .docx will show the problem
Comment 6 haim kilov 2018-07-14 16:17:25 UTC
Saving as .doc (as opposed to .docx) does not result in creation of the unneeded vertical line.
Comment 7 Xisco Faulí 2018-07-17 19:16:05 UTC
This seems to be a regression. I tried to bisect it with bibisect-43max but the result is no accurate...
Maybe someone can bisect it with lo-linux-dbgutil-daily-till43 ?
Comment 8 Justin L 2018-08-24 17:27:42 UTC
bisected to the same commit as bug 82177.  Hack fixable with
    else if ( !rStyleProps || !rStyleProps->LineWidth )
        // no line, and no line set by the style either:
        // there is no need to write the property
+        {}
-        return;
