Description nadavkav 2007-10-29 22:55:38 UTC
i made a table, click inside one of the cells, clicked on the border button to
choose one of the view/hide border options and none worked :-( as described in
the preview window. some did nothing and some worked partially.

i use localized Hebrew version of OOo and Debian/Fedora versions too
all act the some. (some versions 2.2.1)

Currently it works that the shown border type is added to the existing one  -
better (and much more intuitive) should be to to apply the shown type of the
border controller.

MRU->FL: I think, the current behavior should be changed and the clicked border
type should apply the full shown sample border - regardless if it is the border
of the neighbor cell or the cell's own border. And it should not only add shown
borders, the border form shown on the button should be applied to the table.

I am no longer officially active on OOo. Please take over.
