Description Telesto 2018-11-08 10:29:02 UTC
Cell borders go far beyond the calc cell. Slightly depended on type of border and the version of LibreOffice

Hard to tell if this is be design or not.. The same formatting looks at least different in excel.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached file in Excel & Calc.

Actual Results:
Border lines are partly drawn outside the calc cell. 

The border with a gap is smaller and looks more like excel in LibreOffice (probably to small). The current spacing between the lines seems to width 

Expected Results:
Drawn inside the table cell

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Dear Telesto,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
