I have a spreadsheet document from which I copy & paste the content into a text document. I copy by marking the area which I want to copy, control + c and control + v pasting it into the text document. However, the formatting gets changed. Precisely, the borders of the cells!

That is how it looks like after exporting the text document as a pdf. http://www.directupload.net/file/d/40...

I want the second line to be as dark as the top line.

Thats how it looks in the text document before exporting it to pdf. http://www.directupload.net/file/d/40...

Thats how my cells where the line shall occur is formatted. Note that the top line and bottom line have exactly the same formatting. http://www.directupload.net/file/d/40...

Why is it different?!

When you copy/paste, LO copies both the text & the formatting (style). Rather than a 'paste', do a 'paste special':

(menu): Edit | Paste Special...

That will give an inline-dialog with many options. One is 'unformatted text', and that is probably the option that you want.

Nope. That did not help. I tried calc8 and unformatted text. Unformatted text completely drops the formatting...
