Have to edit an odt doc (v., last on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS).

There's this table inside that has a thick outer border,
line width being definitely > 0.05 pt and color != black.

So I select the whole table, and do Table > Properties > Borders.

Since I want to know the current thickness / color for the outer border, I click on the Set Outer Border icon, but that information is not shown (tried also the other Set Outer Border ... icons, still nothing).

How to get the current thickness (line width) and color of the current border of a table?

The problem is you can't click-select an element in the preview. Whenever you click on any line, its properties are set according to what is specified in the Line section.
