2014-11-17 02:30:34 +0200 answered a question Calc: Border thickness 1.50 reverts to 0.75 when saved/reopened.

Sorry, I totally forgot!

LibreOffice 4.3.3.2 on OSX 10.10.

As for the exact steps to reproduce: - Create a new Calc Spreadsheet, and set the font to Trebuchet for all cells. - Locate (or create) a file in Finder that has a letter ä or ö (umlaut) in the filename, and copy the text from the filename to the clipboard. - Paste the filename to the created Spreadsheet. Regular paste or paste unformatted, no difference. - Set the style of the cell to italic.

The issue is that the ä and ö (umlauts) do not change to italic while the other letters do.

If I set cells with borders of 1.50pt (or 1.25pt) thickness, the visible thickness is about double compared to the default 0.75. However, when I open the file again, the visible thicknesses are now same, and when right-clicking to "Format Cells...", all borders appear to be of 0.75pt thickness.

Only when I set the borders to 1.75pt thick, is the thicker border stored and recalled on load.

If the thinner borders are all rounded to 0.75pt (or 1pt or whatever), I don't think there should even be a possibility to set the borders to the in-between thicknesses.

2014-11-14 13:16:08 +0200 asked a question Font Trebuchet italic "ä" shows as non-italic.

In LibreOffice (4.3.3.2) Calc and Writer, the italic "ä" shows as non-italic, when using Trebuchet font and copy-pasteing text from a filename in Finder (OSX 10.10). The issue remains even if I paste the text unformatted. If I type the same text manually, there is no issue.

Funny detail: If I press backspace at the "ä" to remove it, it first turns into "a", after which the italic DOES work. Could it be that LibreOffice is registering the single letter as separate a and ¨? Although, if I type ¨ and a to create the "ä", the italic DOES work correctly.

OpenOffice does NOT have this issue in Writer or Calc.

Anything I can do to pinpoint the issue? Or perhaps fix the issue locally?
