As suggested by Caolán M. bug 75408#c12--Perhaps we should adjust the UI a bit to have a little radiobutton on the borders page to "add border distance to current size" vs "subtract border distance from current size (default)"
The default behavior when modifying individual OLE objects, or setting a document style for their import, is to keep the containing frame size static and reduce the object size to fit.
As in bug 75408 This is especially a problem when inserting or linking OLE for Math .odf formula objects where font size and spacing is critical to readability.
Propose enhancement would be as Caolán suggests to add a radio button and label to the Frame Properties dialog --> Borders tab to choose to increase the size of object's frame rather than reduce object to fit in existing frame.
Should be applied to the Frame Style dialog as well, and style behavior when set would be that on import or linkage, border or distance to content would be additive--holding size of original.
I agree. Thank you for this proposition.
Best regards. JBF
I agree with this too

I suggest to make this also possible for other border lines, e.g. page borders.
My comment 4 relates to bug 112195 (Whole-Page-Filling) - Allow page background to cover the whole page. Because of that bug, now it's not possible to have an other-colored margin around the page content area as it was possible until LibO 6.3.
