Description Ransom 2020-10-08 20:54:50 UTC
If you want to create a kind of “ornamental/decorative frame” around a page, choose under “Page Style\Borders\Line\Style” any of the double line styles, e. g. “Inset”. In LibreOffice Writer, the inner line basically extends beyond the corners (see ornamental frame – “Inset” – LibreOffice.pdf), whereas in OpenOffice Writer, the inner line forms a real corner (see ornamental frame – “Inset” – OpenOffice.pdf).

Since the “ornamental/decorative frames” are displayed correctly in OpenOffice Writer, it is obvious that there is a bug in LibreOffice Writer regarding the correct display of “ornamental/decorative frames” resp. double line styles.

The bug described here refers to version (x64).

I once tried versions, (x64), (x64) and (x64).


Version Here the inner corners are still correct, resp. here the inner corners are still “real” corners without the iner line protruding from the corner.

Version (x64): Identical to version

Version (x64): Here the described bug appears for the first time.

Version (x64): Identical to version (x64).

The bug described here exists since version

Hello Dieter,

you’re right, this bug is a duplicate of bug 114816, which becomes especially clear from comment 12 on.
