Hi jlbraga,
Thanks for the suggestion! Could you explain a little more about what you'd expect regarding round corners? Are you thinking about tables in Writer, or use in other components as well? Would the corner parameters be configurable?

Status -> NEEDINFO

In the meantime, please note that there are some workarounds that might be helpful:

Wherever it is possible to create tables, there should be a table and/or cell format option to make the corners round. Also, there could be an option to choose the curvature intensity (or percentage). It is possible to do this to cells and tables in HTML/CSS, why can't it be possible in an office suite?...

And why do you think this has something to do with ODF?
Comment 4 jlbraga 2015-03-24 14:16:22 UTC
To make cells more presentable if someone wants to put them around some text, like in a title, or a header, or around a spreadsheet, or in the first line of the spreadsheet, etc....

No, I don't mean a cell which must be partially drawn by hand, I mean a cell that's created automatically like every cell, but with configurable corners. It's possible to configure the intensity of the cell's border, the colors, etc., why not the cell's corners as well? It's an enhancement to the cell's styling. And by "cells" I mean tables as well...

Yes CSS provides a border-radius property to modify the border of a block-level element, but should such a feature be included in an office suite? I would assume that it would provide very little benefit to the amount of work involved in implementing it within dialogs and modifying the odf to support it and of course also having to deal with issues of compatibility, as other office suites dont provide the feature.

I'm not saying it has to be written in CSS code...I'm saying the feature should also exist in LibreOffice. As for compatiblity, it could of course be compatible with CSS in case the table was cut/copied to a webpage, but the other programs who couldn't open the table with the borders, didn't have to open the table with the borders, they could open it with the regular ones...
I don't understand much about coding, but I guess it's possible to do it.
An office document creator should permit the maximum customization/personalization of the pretended document. This would be a feature that other suites don't offer...

OOPS...

I wanted to say this:
