Description Robert Großkopf 2019-01-11 18:48:56 UTC
Open any existing database.
Open any form.
Have a look a the borders of any form-control except table-control.
All borders aren't shown any more.

This bug happens
Build ID: 2ce5217b30a543f7666022df50f0562f82be0cff
CPU threads: 6; OS: Linux 4.12; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
Locale: en-US (de_DE.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

Doesn't appear with LO on OpenSUSE 15 64bit rpm Linux.

Note: Also the whole menubar is disabled when opening the form. Something is running totally wrong here.

Confirmed (some of this) with Ubuntu 18.04.1 and LO
Build ID: 2ce5217b30a543f7666022df50f0562f82be0cff
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 

First - the borders; this is a problem only when the controls are set to style 'FLAT'. The borders are now very thin and a very light grey, on light backgrounds (such as white) they are easily missed. 

Second - The highlighting of selected control by changing the border color to blue is not happening at all. (I think that is worth a separate issue, but I'll hold off on entering to give people a chance to speak if they think this issue should cover both)

A good example database to see this is attached to https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122358

Steps to reproduce:

1 - download the attached zip file, extract the odb and open it
2 - open the single form in the file
3 - select any of the controls on the left side of the form

The controls look almost as if they have no border at all. (it appears that the controls in FLAT style use the same border settings that the lower and right borders use when the style is set to 3D.)

The control border of the selected control did not highlight by changing to blue.

The controls should have a visually stronger border on all sides when style is FLAT.
A control set to style FLAT should display a highlighted, in blue, border when receiving focus and revert to the default border when losing it.

I did not find any issues with the toolbar in my testing.

Have a look at this screenshot:

Not just Linux, I can reproduce this on macOS 10.14.2 with LO6202RC
