GSoC progress for week #7 and week #8.
Made research on borders in Writer-Tables
- Bug: tdf#51665 - Support diagonal borders in TABLEs
Table Toolbar > Bordes, Writer has 8 border frames for each cell, and has 12 border frames for multiple selected cells. With 2 new borders (Diagonal Left/Right), Writer has 14 border frames.
I made research about how applying borders works in Writer-Tables. Then I started to work on it with sending first patchsets as WIP: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/119685
I realized that Calc has diagonal borders feature in both
Format > Cells... > Borders tab and (Sidebar Tab)
Properties > Cell Appearance. Next week, I will try to understand how diagonal borders work in Calc cells and will try to implement them in Writer-Tables.
