Description Jim Avera 2015-01-12 22:16:41 UTC
Format->Page allows setting borders around the page margin.   Both "OK" and "Apply" buttons are offered.   However, after setting a border and clicking "Apply", the borders can not be removed with a subsequent "Apply".  


1. In Writer: Format->Page->(Borders tab)
2. Click the 2nd "Line Arrangement" for borders on all 4 sides
3. Click Apply
(borders appear on the document)
4. Click the 1st box (no borders)
5. Click Apply

ACTUAL RESULTS: Nothing happens (in step 5).

EXPECTED RESULTS: Borders should be removed.

Note: The other "Line Arrangement" _do_ work, i.e., you can remove some of the borders.  But you can't remove all of them using a second "Apply".  

Exiting and restarting the Page Style editor makes it work again (for on "Apply")
