Comment 1 Caolán McNamara 2013-02-20 21:10:25 UTC
The missing border around "printer list" was fixed with bug 60450. The spacing around the various elements is too tight in 4-0 which makes it feel claustrophobic.

I don't personally intend to implement the lines around frames, (See To-Do, hook a DecorationView into VclFrame in vcl/source/window/layout.cxx if someone wants to do that on a per-theme basis as to whether to draw it or not)
