Able to confirm using release (x86-64 openSuse 12.3)

When using "===" a single line of 0.05pt is created.

Thanks for the fix! I guess it’d be good to include the comparison image in the release notes :-)

I found the line visible in daily build now,but the line is a single line.
when saving the file,then open it by OpenOffice 4.0.1,the line is correct double line.

@ 曾孝薇 : I do not agree with you. The line is actually double as shown in your attachment 89674 [details] and screen shot attachment 89414 [details].
Please check again with a higher zoom.

Comparison of same file opened by LibreOffice and Openoffice

The same file opened by Libreoffice and Openoffice in zoom 100%,line is double line obviously in Openoffice,but LibreOffice need higher zoom.I think it should be consistent in visual .
Comment 9 Laurent Balland 2013-11-24 20:46:23 UTC
Since LibO 3.4 (I think), LibO treats in a different way border. In case of double line, the width represents the total width of the line for LibO. In the previous versions, the width represented the width of each line, which was quite confusing in case of double line with different width.

If you need larger border, you may try AutoCorrection with "###" instead as "===" as shown in attachment 89414 [details].

AutoCorrect works now as expected so I close the bug. If you want to change the way as LibO treats border, please open a new bug, because it is a totally different problem as the one treated in this bug report.
