Screenshot of graphical bug

Problem description: When you select a certain character in the “Special Character” grid, and this character is positioned near the limit of the grid, a calculation error happens and the 3D border is not rawn according to the cell’s size. See attached screenshot.

Steps to reproduce:
1. In Writer, go to Insert > Special Character...
2. Make sure focus is not in the character grid.
3. The first cell will be highlighted in gray.

What happens: The 3D border is not correctly positioned around the whole cell

What should happen: This 3D effect is drawn according to the cell’s whole size, or is absent altogether.
Operating System: All
Version: Inherited From OOo

Cells are of different width (the first - the middle ones - the last), idem for height. Not very professionnal.
Attachment : the second note ("There's no border outside the whole character table") may be thought as of less importance than the first (the different sizes lead messy cell highlight).

Note for cell highlight : a 3D effect only when the table is not selected ; a basic flat raw blue effect when the table is selected ; Surprising...

> Reproductible.

So lets mark it as such. In Mac OSX there is no 3D effect (only a blue background if selected).

Priority: minor low. Doesn't block any functionality, just for the eye :).

Kind regards,

FTR, the missing border around the character table is fixed with 519f4b75a5f089b6ef98260ff6265f5000fe4659 since April.

Seems correct for some time, and commit ref looks germane.
