Description volker.nebelung 2013-01-08 15:47:49 UTC
Problem description: 

When you edit the background color of a table cell, clicking OK and applying the change makes the cell lose all its border formatting. Even when you explicitly check some borders to appear immediately after you changed the background color and then click OK, the border formatting is lost.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new table
2. Right click in a cell and choose "Table…"
3. Choose tab "Borders" and select some borders
4. Click "OK"
5. Right click again in the same cell "Table…"
6. Choose tab "Background" and change the color
7. Go to tab "Borders" and see that the current border is yet selected
8. Click "OK" --> border disappears

Current behavior:

Border formatting is getting lost on editing cell background color

Expected behavior:

Border formatting should be unaffected by changing the cell's background color
Operating System: Mac OS X
Version: release

Hi @volker, thanks for reporting.

I have did a try, seems to me the issue is that border are removed when a background colour is applied. If after set the background colour the border is set up then it remains.

At least there is a easy work around.

Set as new.
