Hi @hades19, Could you please describe what you're expecting to be able to do? Do you want to change multiple line styles at once?

Hi @hades19,

It sounds like this could just be a bulk-formatting question, or could be a rendering bug in LO. If you're seeing issues with how XLSX documents are rendering in LO, please file a bug about this problem. The QA team will be happy to help you track down this issue!

Please post a link to any bugs you file in a comment below using the format "fdo#123456".

This bug has been previously reported there: fdo#56960 (in November 2012)

It was fixed for the LibreOffice 4.1 series. Unfortunately, none of the previous versions saw a fix. At the moment, there only is 4.0.6 left to possibly see it fixed in this series.

With the release of 4.1.3 in late October, this series should be stable enough for most users to adopt. See the release plan for more information.

I am having the same problem as hades19.

1 - XLSX format doesn't remember border sizes. .80pt lines display as 4.0pt lines.

2 - Also, worksheets don't remember the fonts selected when saved. Arial and Courier New are reset as Calibri.

3 - I attempted to attach the XLSX file in which I was presently experiencing these annoying symptoms, but "uploading requires karma >3." Please e-mail me if I can upload the file elsewhere so a developer can examine it.

I have spent considerable time fixing everything, but upon closing and re-opening the file, all those settings are lost again.

This is actually an improvement, however. Previously -- before the LibreOffice update TODAY (2013 Apr 8) -- I was unable to save to XLSX or open XLSX files created by LO (although LO was able to open XLSX files created by MsOffc.)
