Calc: Border thickness 1.50 reverts to 0.75 when saved/reopened

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.

Please, which version, which OS… and please have a look at: What information should I include in a question in addition to OS and LibreOffice version? - #4 by ROSt53

Same problem and it is February 2020 — six years later and still the same bug.

I thought I was going crazy until I found mrelwood’s post.

Sorry, I totally forgot!

LibreOffice 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.

Unfortunately I cannot make a test because I don’t have OSX 10.10 test. In XP and LibO using Trebuchet MS the Umlaute change to italic.

May I propose to file a bug report here:
