Adjust format paintbrush settings?

Hi, so I recently found out about the promising-sounding Format Painter tool and thought I'd try it out; I've been working on a writer document containing a table requiring a variety of different cell border widths and didn't much feel like changing them all the "old-fashioned" and time-consuming way: individually. So I have been using the format paintbrush to copy/paste cell border widths as needed.

However, the format paintbrush also copies the background colour of the cells from which the copies were made into the new cells, which for my purposes is undesirable. Which got me thinking: is there any way to adjust what cell/text properties are copied by the format paintbrush?

Thanks in advance.
