LibreOffice Writer: Table Cells Borders


I've got an irritating problem on my LibreOffice Writer 3.5, which isn't present on my other Writer on a different computer.

I'm trying to hide borders in specific table cells (not the whole table). But my Table toolbar does not have any "Borders" button, or any way of adding one! How can I hide top & bottom borders in one particular cell of a table?

I don't know about LO 3.5 but version 4.0 certainly does have a Borders button for tables. You'll find it along the bottom of the window just below the Find bar. It's the 3rd button from the left. Just click anywhere on the table and you'll see the buttons appear along the bottom.

After having created a table,you go into a cell (any cell) in the table. Right-click and you choose Table. A window will open.Then you can see the "borders" pane.

Alteratively, while being in a cell of the table you choose "Table" from the top menu and from there "Table Options"

Yes, but that does borders for the whole table, not just for one cell on its own.

I seem to have found a solution - the borders button was not on the tables toolbar, but by editing the toolbar I was able to add it from a list of available buttons.

Thank you for your replies.
