I could not reproduce with Version:
Build ID: 6c3586f855673fa6a1576797f575b31ac6fa0ba3 Ubuntu 13.10, all borders are visible when inserting the table. Are you sure that under Tools > Options > Writer > Table > Default area, that Borders is checked? Sophie

Comment 3 dowsettjoe 2014-04-09 10:07:27 UTC
Yes, borders is checked in the options.

This problem also occurs with an existing document / table however, see the attached image.

My OS is Ubuntu Gnome (13.10), running Cinnamon desktop.

This bug is also evident in version 4.2.3 rc3 and released version under Mac OSX (64 bit). 

It was present in version 4.2.1 but not version 4.2.2.

Comment 6 manj_k 2014-04-11 14:31:34 UTC
Please try: Menu Table → Table Boundaries (enabled).

Probably a dup of Bug 76195 - regression: with "Table Boundaries" disabled, the borders of tables are not visible.
Comment 7 dowsettjoe 2014-04-11 14:54:49 UTC
Yes, enabling Table Boundaries does cause the borders to display.
I agree that this is a duplicate
