I have several tables in my document and uses different line style for my table borders. To edit the border, place cursor in table then right/click Table/Border. If I want to edit the line width border of a table, for example, I do not know what is the current settings. If there was an option to show the border settings once a border is selected, this would eliminate the guessing in Style, Width and Color drop down list. Since we do not have it, I have to try the most probable option until the border looks like what I currently have, then start making changes from that point.

This is time consuming and could easily be improved by having an option to show current settings.

Thanks for your reply, the Writer guide answers my question only partially, but that's my fault, I was not clear enough in my original question. It is better if we set an example.

Take a cell and set top border as 1pt and bottom borders as 2pt, leave other properties as default. Click OK to leave the Table Format.

Select the same cell right-click Select Table/Borders. How can I tell the line width of the top and bottom borders?
