Description HD 2016-01-29 01:31:13 UTC
Created attachment 122265 [details]
table copied from Calc

Open new spreadsheet and add borders to a range. (e.g. Width : 1.50 pt)
Copy the range and paste as “calc8” or “GDI metafile” into Writer document.

You can see that top and left borders look thinner than other borders, on the screen display or in printed result.

Copy range with empty cells of top and left in Calc and paste it into Writer.
(e.g. If cell range with borders is "B2:D5", copy "A1:D5")

Best regards.

Depends on zoom level. If you zoom very close, it looks better.
In my case, it was top and right that were thinner.

This seems somehow familiar, but I was not able to find a duplicate.

Dear HD,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
