Description pat 2020-04-02 12:53:43 UTC

I line number a document. 

I want a vertical border between line numbering and my document body content. 

The modified style with a border setup seems not apply (see below steps to reproduce)

Nothing appears. 

The alternative way seems to apply a left border to document body content (paragraph...).

Not sure it is a bug, but seems dysfunction. 

Can you confirm? 


Steps to Reproduce:
1. menu "tools"/ "line numbering" : to line number the document
2. style dialog (F11), "characters styles") "line numbering", "modify", 
3. I set up a line border (width, color...), and apply. -> nothings appears

Actual Results:
Style do not apply

Expected Results:
A style modification applyed 

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

I confirm that behaviour with

Version: (x64)
Build ID: 1c9ced04189c9d23ffea05d5570960b54b05ef28
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 18363; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win; 
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI-Language: en-GB
Calc: CL

Same result with
- Highlight color

It works with
- strikethrough
- underlining
- bold
- italic

So more general: Some settings of a character style are missing, if style is used for line numbering (I changed bug summary)

Still the same issue with a recent master build:

Version: / LibreOffice Community

Highlighting and borders of a character style are not picked up by line numbering.
