Set a default border in Calc

Dear EE members,
I would like to set the default border from 0.5 to 1. When I want to add border to particular cell(s). It will
always 1 instead of 0.5. Please refer the screenshoot for further detail.

Regards,
Peter

The default cell format is driven by the default style (Format | Styles and Formatting or F11).  However, you cannot save a default line thickness.

There are some options, depending on what you want to accomplish. Most set up a style with the desired line thickness and border settings (like a style called outside that has the 1.00 pt thickness and a line drawn around the outside of the selected cells).  Then when you want to draw a border around a cell with a 1.00 pt thickness you press F11 and choose that style.

Create this style in a blank document and save it as a template.  You can then load that template to have your new style.  (File | Templates | Save or Shift-F11)

Dear EE members,

My user just want to click on the  Border icon to select "______" , then the cell border become 1.0 thickness. It 's too much step for him to press F11, choose the style then F11 again to close. Any idea
like macro or anything which only need a single step.

Regards,
Peter

Styles also has a button on the toolbar.  He can click on this button, double click the style and close the window.

If that still is not good enough, create the style you want.  Then record a Macro to do the four clicks above (Tools | Macros | Record Macro).  Now turn that Macro into a toolbar button.  Click the drop down arrow on the right side of any toolbar and choose customize toolbar.  Now select the toolbar for this button (I suggest Formatting).  Then click Add.  Scroll to the bottom on the category list and expand OpenOffice.org Macros.  Expand the section where you stored you r macro.  You will see your macro name in the right column (Commands).  Highlight that macro and select Add.  Now you will have your macro on the toolbar.
