Description Eugine 2018-08-10 18:57:59 UTC
I am the linux user.

Noticed this bugs for now only in xls files.

Opened the same file with MS Office (on Windows), WPS Office (on Linux) and LibreOffice (on Linux).

The file has print area set and cells background styles.

Where WPS and MS Office show cells background LO Calc shows them white.
Some cells in LO Calc have excess border lines while WPS and MS Office show no cell borders.

LO Calc shows wrong print area that fit to sheet width instead of initially set area.

Tried to save the same file in XLSX (with WPS) - two bugs disappeared (cell background and print area), excess cell border lines still remained.

Expected Results:

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Please attach a PDF exported from MS Office so we can see how it should look like.

One issue per report, so adjusting summary to focus on the first mentioned issue.

Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the PDF.

I think we should leave here only bug about Unnecessary cell borders.

BTW, Print area is wrong in source xls file

I don't think this is a FILEOPEN problem, but a printing one...
