It paint the cell box at a wrong way which celll across page.

Step to show bug:

1. Insert a table which only have one cell.
2. Set no boders except bottom line.
3. Make the cell acroos page. Then it paint the top line of the cell at the second page.

Hi @agcoder, thanks for reporting.

There is an option in the Menu/Table/Table properties - Text Flow tab - Allow row to break across pages and columns.
Deactivating the option, seems is what you want.

Resolved as not a bug, please if you are not agree, reopen it.

Thanks @m.a.riosv!

It is necessary to across the page for the cell.
And it work well when set top line only.
It just seem to has problem when set bottom line only.

There is a vidio to show the program floww or see at the attachment:


I am not sure that it just work like that when across the cell.
If it is not a bug. close it please.

1. Insert enters to come near bottom of the page in Writer
2. Insert a table which only have one cell.
3. Set no borders except bottom line.
4. Put some enters inside the table to go over the page bottom
5. Open Print preview and see 3 borders.
6. Open Table properties-Borders and see double border.
7. Try to remove only middle border, not possible.
8. With no-border, cannot add bottom border after.

Repro OO and 6.4+.
