I am trying to create a spreadsheet with colored cell backgrounds. But I encountered this strange bug, where the background of a cell is bigger than the shown border, so coloring a cell will actually color a very slim margin in the cell next to it. :/

Here is an example of what I mean (zoomed in):

Screenshot of the PDF

Note that what you see here is the created PDF, so this is not just an issue with Calcs representation!

  • As you can see the blue cell stretches into the cells above and to the left, but strangely not to the bottom.
  • Furthermore there is a very faint grey line as border between some black cells. This is strange as I certainly never used any grey colors for cell borders. Also the line is only visible in the PDF (or in the OOCalc preview) on certain zoom levels.

Any idea on how to fix this? Am I missing something?

(Only way around it up to now has been to add quite thick borders to cover up the error, but that is an ugly hack...)
