The LibreOffice Calc cannot overwrite the border style of an adjacent cell, if we try to modify the border style of the active cell.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new spreadsheet (save as *.ods or *.xlsx) with LibreOffice Calc
2. Set the A1:C10 cells border style to a simple (1 pt width, black) continuous line
3. Try to modify only one cell (B5) border to “- none -”

4. Do the same (save as *.xlsx) from the beginning in Microsoft Excel 2010/2013/2016

Actual results:
We cannot modify a simple cell border (we have to select at least 2) in LibreOffice Calc, if we have already set a cell border for a larger range. We can modify it with Microsoft Excel.

Expected results:
We should modify a simple cell border in LibreOffice Calc, even if we have already set a cell border for a larger range.

I can confirm in:

It is inherited from OOo.

The only way to set one cell unbordered is right click-> Format Cells->Set no borders and check box Remove border.
