Description Bayram Çiçek 2021-08-15 20:56:10 UTC
In "Properties sidebar > Cell Appearance", Calc always shows preview of the selected cell borders.

For example; if LEFT border set in a cell, the preview shows LEFT border (as expected). But this feature, doesn't show the preview of diagonal borders.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open Calc and select a cell
2. (in Sidebar) go to "Properties > Cell Appearance"
3. select Diagonal Up (and/or Down) border 

Actual Results:
Preview doesn't show diagonal borders

Expected Results:
Diagonal borders should be shown in the preview (as other borders).

Reproducible: Always
