Description SriJanani 2014-10-25 11:57:06 UTC

Wanted to report about the Table Insertion bordering inconsistency found in Libre Impress, sometimes it works at the first time rest of the times we have to do multiple bordering to change the borders. Tried with multiple versions its the same.

Steps to reproduce error- Insert table-> once the table is inserted(with the highlighted table) right click->table->click Borders tab->by default it will show width 0.05pt(unless you change it to 1.00pt it wont show the border and default color will be white should be changed to black-> then click background tab to change the default table color tango blue to white then click ok. It does not work.(if it works for the first time try next time it wont work). 

Note: After inserting the table if you directly right click and try to alter changes it wont work, however if you click outside the table and then select the table again it works.

Sorry If I am confusing please try and let me know if you are able to replicate the error. Also any idea why the table color is default set to tango blue even if you paste something copied from Calc sheet(it has own color).

Thank You,

Reproducible with LO (Win 8.1):
If I follow the steps I get a table with a white background, but not with black borders, although I have selected black borders.  This is very annoying, but I would rather not mark it as release Blocker severity.

Hi Sri,

Maybe you can test it in the versions for the upcoming 4.4.0 ?
IIRC some work has been done on Impress tables..
See http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/

Hi Cor,

No its the same with 4.4.0. No luck any other suggestion. 

Thank You,

I can still reproduce this and I closed a newer report as a dupe. I will include its slightly different repro method below.

1.Insert column: 3 rows and 2 columns
2.Type numbers ramdomly
3.Selecte the second row.
4.Right click > edit table properties
5.Width. 2,5pt
6.Color : black
7.Click on bottom border and accept
8. Now the line doesn't appear.
9. Save file and close
10. Open the same file and the border is there

attachment 130797 [details] is a table from step 2.

My own finding while reproducing: After doing the steps, I can make the border appear by setting a colored background to any cells. So saving and reloading is not needed.

Hi Miklos,

Since you did some nice Impress table improvements, this may be something you may want to look at? Looks as a refreshment issue, IMO.

Ciao - Cor
