I don't have a way to transmit a picture but here are the steps to
replicate using any version of LO on any platform:

1. Paste the following three lines as unformatted text into Calc with
commas as the delimiter to create a 3x3 table:


Or just create this 3x3 table in Calc.

2. Copy the resulting 3x3 table from Calc and paste special into to
Writer as RTF.

3. Now you have a 3x3 table in Writer with no margins. Ensure the
left-most column is left-aligned.

4. Add borders at the top and bottom row (in fact, you can add no

LO not only adds the borders but also changes the margin of the cells of
the rows to which you have added borders. The result looks strange
because the top and bottom row have a margin of about 0.04 while the
middle row is flush left.

Bonus step:

5. Right-click and select Table > Border and observe that "Spacing to
contents" shows all zero's, even though non-zero margins are clearly
being used.

using, upload an illustration to a file sharing service and post the
link back to the list. Dave
