Description werner 2013-08-08 11:35:53 UTC
Problem description: When scaling a document above 120% some border lines/formatting start to vanish when printing.  Print preview looks OK.

Steps to reproduce:
1. .... Set any border of cells
2. .... Go to Print Preview
3. .... Set Scaling Factor above 120%
4. .... Print document

Current behavior: Some border lines vanish due to Border - Line - Width is set too thin (0,05pt) as default. 

Expected behavior: Print all border lines / formatting

3.5 version does not have this problem due to Border - Line - Width is set to 0,30pt by default.

Workaround: Manually set Border - Line - Width to 0,30pt

Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release
Last worked in: 3.5 all versions

Created attachment 83868 [details]
Test file and results of printing to MS XPS Writer virtual printer and PDF export

This is a spreadsheet to test the problem. It has been printed to MS XPS Writer to show the problem.
Comment 3 Mike Kaganski 2013-08-08 23:01:08 UTC
Note that the problem is not related to defaults of line widths: in 3.5, default widths are 0.05pt, too. But regardless of the default, if you set thin border widths (0.05pt) in any version prior to 3.5.5, they are printed OK.
Comment 4 Kohei Yoshida 2014-05-17 05:15:11 UTC
Cell border handling has been reworked in 4.2, and this appears to work fine with 4.2.5.
Comment 5 Mike Kaganski 2014-05-19 08:54:54 UTC
Don't see any improvement with Version:
Build ID: 41b9ab0375f455f504c66b4870e817aba0f990d2
TinderBox: Win-x86@42, Branch:libreoffice-4-2, Time: 2014-05-18_18:05:37

Printing the ods from attachment 83868 [details] gives horizontal lines 1, 5, 6, 7, 8 to be zero-width, invisible in XPS, almost invisible on hi-res printer, hair-size in PDF (noticeable on zooming).

Comment 6 Kohei Yoshida 2014-05-20 03:38:09 UTC
Then you and I are seeing different things.  Either way I cannot reproduce it any more.

Comment 8 ign_christian 2014-07-02 15:07:29 UTC
I saw same result as Mike with "Export as PDF". But printing with CUPS-PDF Printer produces good result. Perhaps its a bug in "Export as PDF"

Tested on LO and - Ubuntu 12.04 x86
Comment 9 ign_christian 2014-07-29 05:43:51 UTC

If it resolved please mark this RESOLVED WORKSFORME, otherwise UNCONFIRMED

*) "Export as PDF" should be different problem
