Problem description: 

Default table border width is (0.05pt) very thin for most printers when toner is low.  "1.00pt" is ok. Thanks..

Works as expected => changed for enhancement.

There is no way to alter the default border width for a cell, which is an issue when exporting to Excel. It would be a big improvement if the border width setting on a style could be adjusted without having to select a specific edge so that when a border is selected it is a more appropriate width. Failing that 0.5pt would be better than 1pt and much better than 0.05pt as a universal default.
