Table borders & edges - lines are all over the place!


Not applicable
In creating my table, whenever I choose the "Border" tab of a particular cell/row/table/field and select the option to apply a border, it doesn't lineate/edge where it's supposed to. Does not matter if it's "indivdual" or "together"...neither works properly.

For example, if I have three columns and I only want a line to appear along the bottom (to visually divide the header row and Row 1), it places lines randomly throughout my table. I've checked EVERY POSSIBLE field, object, box, etc. to ensure that nothing is marked with borders. My table is not in a subform either.

VERY FRUSTRATING that I cannot get the table to look as it should!

I have the same problems with borders not only in tables but also with the borders of cells. If I define two different line strenghts for example 0.17 and 0,035 mm, Designer 8 mixes them in an unpredictable way.

any suggestions?
