Description Lenge 2012-10-30 01:29:20 UTC
After upgrading from 3.5 to 3.6, I noticed that the separator lines between columns of text may no longer be thinner than 0.25pt (which is quite thick). Before 3.6, LibreOffice allowed thinner lines.

Steps to reproduce:
- In Writer, click the "Format/Columns..." menu entry
- Set more then 1 cloumn
- Set a separator line style (any other than "none")
- Try to set a width below 0.25pt (does not work)

The same limitation (bug) occurs with columns in text sections ("Insert/Sections...").

reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit), but I would propose to mark it as an enhancement
Comment 2 Ákos 2016-09-20 14:01:54 UTC
Reproducible with LO 32bit (win10 Ent 64bit)
