Description Karl 2020-03-07 09:41:42 UTC
Hi folks !

Line thickness formatting / Is a task in all LO Applications

In most cases a user might want a different "default" thickness than the 
(for example calc) default THINNEST line.

It can be assumed, that this user might use "HIS" default for consistent 
document looking.

Could be usefull for calc cell borders, drawing lines and objects 
with impress / draw , even in writer.

WHERE to STORE Default Thickness ::
-> Setting document wide ?! // ist this possible ?
-> Application wide (calc / impress /draw / writer ?!
-> User wide ?!
-> Or LO over all Setting ?!

Thanx for LO

kind regards

Steps to Reproduce:
1.give a calc cell a border and format line thickness different than "normal" THINNEST LINE given

2. repeat on another cell (you have to call the thicknes dialog again!)
3. repeat sometimes (you may find it lovely, you could have a setting for a different default thickness )

Actual Results:
more clicking work

Expected Results:
less clicking work

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Hi folks

i am german, my english might be too poor.

If you draw an objekt, by default "thinest line" is the drawing thickness.
Assigning "your desired thicknes" has the need for some "clicking action".

The more clicking action, the more objects you have drawn, or you will draw for more.

You might wish to select a special line-thickness BEVOR you do your drawing at all,
or in between your drawing (and/or formatting) your objects 
(when you figured out : this thicknes is it for me!). 

So an option : For next drawing, an option "THIS thickness" is "is my default!"

For example:: From now on i will use 6 pt thicknes without clicking!
THIS shounkld bepossible in LO at all.

kind regards jürgen

Commented on bug 52112 that table styles are quite powerful. The actual request, or rather the best solution, is a duplicate of bug 58349
