example odt: edit the calc table and the resulting pdf shows the error
When inserting a calc table with colored cells in a writer document, the color is misaligned in the printout and pdf.
in libreoffice 4.4 and 5.0 everthing works as expected.
tested it with 5.2 and the error is still there.

printout with misaligned color after editing calc table with 5.1
When you say misaligned, are you referring to the white space between the cell's color and the right cell border?
yes ... if you compare the two attached pdfs it should be clear what i mean.
it seems that the offset between color and cell border is sometimes bigger and sometimes smaller. in the simple uploaded test.odt the difference is rather small, but i have documents where the difference is more obvious.
I uploaded another example where the error is more obvious

pdf created from example2 where the error is more obvious
I confirm. It depends on the zoom level, no need to create a PDF.

Screenshot showing the issue
I can confirm this as well. When a Calc table is pasted into Writer with (some of) its cells having background filling, the filling becomes misaligned with respect to the cell borders.
1. In a new Calc document, fill a few cells in a column with text and set their background filling to any color
2. Apply all borders to the affected cells
3. Select the affected cells as well as their neighboring cells and paste that into a new Writer document
3. Cell background filling is aligned to the cell borders
3. Cell filling is moved up-left with respect to the cell borders
The issue is also visible in the resulting PDF document if the Writer document gets exported to PDF.

The issue seems to be a regression in LO 5.1. LO 4.0.4 and 5.0.5 do not show the issue (tested as portable releases on 32-bit Windows Vista).
The issue is especially striking on paper-printouts, where it looks like printer misalignment (tested printing out exported PDF document).
Thanks for the regression test, Johnny.
This seems to have begun at the below commit.

Error is still present in Version 126.96.36.199. No need to make a PDF. Error is now obvious on the screen.
Error is not present in Version 3.3.4 and in 4.2
Same problem with version 188.8.131.52 (Build ID: 65905a128db06ba48db947242809d14d3f9a93fe)
This problem has been open for almost three years.
Concretely, it makes it impossible in demanding contexts to publish ODT reports including OLE ODS.
The severity of the ticket could be revised upwards? If "no", what is the position of developers on this need. Are there any solutions of contournelent?
This problem is now open for about 4,5 years or since two major versions and still no change.
Is there anything that could be done from a non-developer to help fixing this issue?
