Screenshot of 400%-scaled thin border with cursor

When scaling spreadsheet, the cursor visibility becomes poor on bordered cells, because it has a fixed width, which soon becomes smaller than width of the border.

See the screenshot of such a case.

The cursor line width should be no smaller (possibly better a bit wider) than the visible size of the border.

Why not playing with a contrasting color?
Comment 2 steve 2022-02-14 09:57:45 UTC
@LeroyG contrast of highlight color is discussed here: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=145080 and will likely be fixed when macOS target is raised to macOS 10.14 Mojave since then Highlight Color will be correctly differentiated from System Accent Color.

My comment is only about macOS situation and slightly off-topic, sorry.

This bug is valid as per screenshot, so setting to new.

(wish we had an edit function in bugzilla)
