Description okinasevych 2018-12-16 19:21:23 UTC
Description:
Borders for paragraphs cannot be set as double-line style. When applying the double-line style, borders appear as single lines. In addition, border corners do not align and appear broken. 

I have tried several different double-line styles, different widths, and on single and multiple sides of a paragraph. This problem manifests in a file I created in 2016 as well as a new file I created to test this issue. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open new Writer document. Type some text. 
2. Choose Format > Paragraph > Borders
3. Set border to a double-line Line style. Set Line Width to any width (say 4.00 pt). Click OK.   

Actual Results:
Line styles do not appear as represented in the Paragraph dialog, ie, they are single- not double-line borders. Corners of these borders do not align. 

Expected Results:
Double-line borders (two parallel lines with a white space between them) are expected. Borders should align at the corners.  


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: Yes

I can confirm this for the settings (regarding to the tooltip in the dialog):

Double: only one line
Thin thick, normal gap: only one line
Thick thin, small gap: only one line


The following settings are O. K.
Double thin: O. K.
Thin thick, medium gap: O. K.
Thin thick, large gab: O. K.
Thick thin, medium gap: O. K.
Thick thin, large gap: O. K.
Inset: O. K.

Okinasevych, do you get the same results. Please try also with LO 6.2, because the paragraph dialog has been modified I think.

Thank you for reporting the bug. I can not reproduce the bug. Borders for paragraphs can be set as double lines which are properly aligned and does not appear broken in

Works mostly as expected using LO 6.2.0.0.beta1. Double-line rules do appear and seem to align correctly at corners. 

However, some disappointments on further testing.

1. Double rule at 1.10 pts appears chunkier than the 1.12 pt example I provided earlier. Looks like I have to use 0.25 pt for similar effect in LO. Gap between lines is very narrow compared to earlier example/attachment. 

2. Print > Save as PDF (MacOS) renders the double-line as a single line.  File > Export as PDF renders double-line when opened in MacOS Preview. Border at 0.25pt appears single after File>Export PDF, then opened in Acrobat Pro. (See new attachment)

3. Testing other double-lines... Thin Thick Large Gap, 2.75 pt ... does not align at corners. Inner lines appears to overshoot in a counter-clockwise fashion.

Double-line rule in LO, Acrobat Pro, and MacOS Preview

Attachment first shows LO Writer with 12 pt text, double thin line at 0.25 pts. Then rendered to PDF using File > Export to PDF. Next is shown the PDF in Acrobat Pro, then in MacOS Preview. All scaled for visual comparison. 

Using LO 6.2.0.0.beta1, MacOS 10.12.6.

Thick double-line borders misaligned in corners.

Thin think large gap border, 4 pt, w 12 pt text. Note inner lines are misaligned at the corners. Seem to overshoot in counter-clockwise manner.

Please copy and paste here the contents of your Help - About. This allows us to know more about your system.

I will set to NEW per comment 3, though.

Retested with prerelease build:

Version: 6.2.0.2
Build ID: 2ce5217b30a543f7666022df50f0562f82be0cff
CPU threads: 4; OS: Mac OS X 10.12.6; UI render: GL; VCL: osx; 
Locale: en-CA (en_CA.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

Testing paragraph with 8 pt double-borders on all sides:

Double -- OK
Double thin -- OK
Thin Thick, Small Gap -- ERROR at corners, inner line 
Thin Thick, Med Gap -- ERROR at corners, inner line 
Thin Thick, Large Gap -- ERROR at corners, inner line 
Thick Thin, Small Gap -- OK 
Thick Thin, Med Gap -- OK 
Thick Thin, Large Gap -- OK 

FWIW, an earlier (ca 2015) document I created with double-rules on single bottom edges of paragraphs renders and prints correctly/as intended. Kudos and thanks.

I see you have OpenGL on. Does it make a difference, if you turn it off? Tools - Options - LibreOffice - View - Use OpenGL for all rendering
Comment 11 okinasevych 2019-01-25 14:37:49 UTC
For the three border types I identified earlier, the error remains when OpenGL rendering is disabled.
