Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-04-23 07:44:58 UTC
In Calc, if you try to set the border style or border color of a cell that doesnt have borders, it will do nothing. Instead it should automatically add the default four borders with the default black color and default border style of 0.05 pt continuous and then apply the selected border style or color on top of that.

Note: Telesto reported in bug 116800 that selecting a border color other than default black for cells without a border has no effect. That's a bug that should be considered when fixing this enhancement.

Code pointer: http://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/126959

    This patch is acting very inconsistently for me.
    The first time I use it, most intermediate rows will
    also have the horizontal border set. But on subsequent
    selections (or an undo / re-apply) then only the
    outside borders are affected. I don't know why.
    So I'm just throwing this out there are a code
    pointer. Calc is too weird.
