Two GNU/Linux Debian machines each running LibO. One (box A) has LibO and the second (box B) has LibO

In box B, there was a set of pre-formatted documents saved in *.odt
that had a double lined border around the page. On opening one of
these files today, this double line had been changed to a single thick
black line. This is now the case for all of these documents I had
previously formatted this way. Box B recently updated from LibO 3.4.*

In box A, I have attempted to set page borders as a test using the
double line style but only thick black lines are possible.

In addition, attempting to set the style under Format / Page / Borders
tab, when clicking "apply" the dialog box defaults to another tab, not
the "borders" tab. I don't know whether this is related or not, but it
might indicate that an attempt to apply the settings is also causing
problems with the tab displays too.

I couldn't find any info on this using Google, and this seems to have
crept in following the upgrade to 3.5.* and now also in 3.6.* Is this
a bug and if so, has it been reported? I don't know how to file a bug
report for this as I don't know how to describe the issue(s) succinctly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Have you tried to adjust the width of the border? (perhaps 3 pt) When I
did this using 3.5 or 3.6, the double line appears although that may not
be exactly what you are looking for.
I have also tried changing the color of the border as well. Lighter
colors seem to be more pleasing than black.


Hi Dan

Thanks for your comments.

Have just tried your suggestion, taking the double line up to 4.5 seems to work - but that seems to be a pretty big width!! The default seems to be set at 0.05 which gives a seemingly single line.

Colours aren't feasible, but I take your point about the aesthetics.

Any thoughts about what is going on when the "apply" button is clicked?

Thanks again.
