Description Kevin Suo 2014-06-22 03:39:30 UTC
This bug is a "clone" of bug 80292. In that bug I found that when create a HTML document in libreoffice and insert a table, it's always a "one-column" table. But after further investigation, I find it's not "one-column", it's many columns as expected but without left and right borders so it looks like one-column.

1. Start LibreOffice;
2. File - New - HTML Document;
3. Table - Insert - Table:  8 rows 8 columns

Current Result:

A table with 8 rows and 8 columns was inserted, but there is no left and right borders for the cells. 
When save the file and view HTML source, I see the following for each <td> tag:

<td width="13%" ... border-right: none;...>

So maybe the "border-right: none" caused the problem.
When you insert a table, it should never by default to set top-bottom borders to 1px but left-right borders to none.

Reproduce with:,
Ubuntu 14.04 x86

Added the cc list in bug 80292 to this one.

Confirmed in Linux Mint in 4.0.6, 4.1.6, 4.2.5 and 4.3.0. Worked correctly in 3.3.0 and 3.6.7. The table is not visible at all in 4.0 and 4.1, while in 4.2 and above, the left and right borders of each cell are missing. Included below is the html code of the first cell in various versions.

= LibO 3.3 =

<TD WIDTH=13% STYLE="; border-top: 2.60pt double #808080; border-bottom: 2.60pt double #808080; border-left: 2.60pt double #808080; border-right: none; padding-top: 0.04in; padding-bottom: 0.04in; padding-left: 0.04in; padding-right: 0in">

= LibO 3.6 =

<TD WIDTH=13% STYLE="border-top: 1px double #808080; border-bottom: 1px double #808080; border-left: 1px double #808080; border-right: none; padding-top: 0.04in; padding-bottom: 0.04in; padding-left: 0.04in; padding-right: 0in">

= LibO 4.0 to 4.3 =

<td width="13%" style="border-top: 1px double #808080; border-bottom: 1px double #808080; border-left: 1px double #808080; border-right: none; padding-top: 0.04in; padding-bottom: 0.04in; padding-left: 0.04in; padding-right: 0in">

So after looking over this html code, it seems there is nothing wrong with the html code, its just that LibO is not rendering it properly, as opening the 4.0 html file in 4.2 shows the top and bottom borders.
Comment 3 Caolán McNamara 2014-06-24 12:39:07 UTC
I believe the problem is just the rendering of the line style of the table.

Go to table->table properties->borders and change the "Style" of the line from the fourth-last to the second entry and it renders well, back to the fourth-last and the vertical lines disappear
Comment 4 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-06-24 20:24:59 UTC
Yes that will do fix it, but LibO should be setting these things incorrectly.
Comment 5 Joel Madero 2014-07-09 05:02:35 UTC
Minor - slows down professional quality work but does not prevent it
High - regression + easily visible

        Make GetParent() const-correct.
        const method should return const pointer if it points to an object held
        internally & prefer taking const pointer as a method argument if possible.

fdo#75260: Correctly draw double lines for both Writer and Calc.

Fix all sorts of incorrect double line handling in drawinglayer in order to
draw thick-thin double line types correctly.  Also change handling of border
lines in writer tables. There are still some outstanding issues but it's
much better than how it was before.

Also realized that Word and Excel handle simple thin double lines differently;
Word varies widths of all of the lines and the gap whereas Excel only has one
fixed size for its double line.  For this reason I decided to add

Dear Kevin Suo,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
