Summary0013617: Very Hard to use Table Properties to set cell borders & very limited options for colour etc.
DescriptionUse Case : A table where the internal cell borders are grey, 1 pt thick and the cells are used as a means to lay out text in a tabular format. For example a results table that has 2 columns and 4 rows with a shaded header row.

It's really hard to work out how to use the dialog to achieve the desired result. The black lines on the box graphic seem to need to be selected in order to change the appearance - but when they change is unclear. The Type select box sometimes changes the text - but most of the dashed line options don't change the text.

If you select unclick and then reclick sides of the box graphic - previous values are brought back - and appearance may not match.

May have failed because I don't understand how to use the dialog - but that's suggests a problem with the design/documentation.
Steps To ReproduceCreate a table and try editing the cell borders / thickness / style / colour to set different colours / thickness for each of the four sides.
Additional InformationWant to use Scribus instead of Pageplus as have moved from Windows to Linux.
