Description Octavio Alvarez 2018-07-31 19:37:02 UTC
Applying borders to multiple paragraphs and setting "Merge with next paragraph" leaves space across row spacing.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. New Writer document.
2. Type "Hello 1" <ENTER>
3. Type "Hello 2" <ENTER>
4. Type "Hello 3", no <ENTER>.
5. Edit » Select All.
6. Format » Paragraph...
7. ... » Tab: Indents & Spacing » Spacing: Above paragraph: 1 cm
8. ... » Tab: Borders » Line Arrangement: Select All Four Borders
9. ... » Tab: Borders » Properties: Merge with next paragraph [checked]

Actual Results:
Inter-paragraph space is not bordered.

Expected Results:
Have a single square around the three paragraphs.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Same thing happened with "Below paragraph: 1cm" and "Line spacing: Proportional: 200%".

Example with thick border.

Yes there is a gap, that shouldn't be there. It is there too, if you use spacing below, and a small gap can even be seen, if the margins are set to 0.

The gap was not there in version 5.4.7, but in that version the corners are not correct.

The borders were correct in version LibreOffice

Regression introduced by https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=1d86f43a10f097aa4925bd48870477001098f5ff, which is the same as in bug 115296
