Hello! Would it be a good idea to have the following improvement to writer? There is a function in Word that allows the curser to change into a pen and one can then click (possible to drag too) on the border one wants to change. It prevent one from doing a lot of manipulation when one has a lot of borders to change (and all different) as it's my case. Also it is possible to see/select the size boxes for cells when in "table" mode without again having to do long manipulation.
I've just switched to LO as I'm soon to change computer and do not want to buy the 365office suite. Unfortunately after spending an hour on one table (8 cells, 4 pictures, 4 words, only!) I still do not have what I want! It is extremely difficult as settings such as borders and size seem to change quite easily and not as I want it to be. An exemple of a small problem which will definitely deter a lot of people from switching to LO.

Thanks for writing here - I set this as a new enhancement.
I would suggest you to also ask/look for explanation on how to work with tables in Writer. Possibly there are nice things that will help you too.
We have great community support for that:

I'd just like to add my support for this request. I've recently switched from Word to Writer and overall was extremely impressed! The one thing I continue to have problems with is even relatively simple tables. Though I hate to say it, the way Word does it is probably as intuitive as you can get (see my bug post: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=136969).
Keep up the fantastic work.
Kind wishes - Patrick
