Steps to reproduce:
1. create a table
2. select it
3. click table in the right click menu
4. try to change the right border by clicking approx. 1mm below a crossing
Both the vertical and the horizontal line are changed.
Only the horizontal line should be changed.

Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686) AppleWebKit/534.34 (KHTML, like Gecko) konqueror/4.9.0 Safari/534.34
Only the VERTICAL line should be changed.
it appears to me that this is a feature:
it should be possible to select 2 lines at once by clicking
on the intersection or corner, and the click area has to be
big enough so users can actually hit it.
if you click on the middle of the upper or lower half
of the right line then you select only that line.
Astron, Kendy do you agree to resolve this NOTABUG?
my problem is, that i have to really concentrate to hit only 1 line. IMO if one wants a bigger 2-line area, one should make the lines broader instead of extending the 2-line-area into the area which is visually a one-line area.
Please note that i'm not arguing against a 2-line area but against a 2-line area which looks like a 1-line area.
I am mostly fine with the borders tool – but I agree with q9 that it can be hard to see what you're changing. I also agree with Michael that selecting two lines can be expected behaviour. The click areas are maybe a bit mushy an may need work – but for now, we can do something else...
Give the user more feedback on what he is selecting before clicking on it.
Right now, we show a dotted outline when the user clicks a border line, so we could just show the same dotted outline in a lighter colour (~ #999999) on mouse over.
(This will only help for people using mice but that should still be the majority of LibO users.)

I vaguely remember putting this forward a while back at UX (can't find the bug) and assessment being feature
I'm not having much issue with the feature by itself, but it's to sensitive (so far to easy to trigger)

In bug 139837, and my take was that the area is large enough. You don't need to click at "approx. 1mm below a crossing". It's a feature not a bug.
