BorderLiner is an OpenOffice.org extension that provides a simple method to draw borders in tables and some text elements in OpenOffice.org Calc and Writer.
Select the line style in the toolbar, use the dialog to define the color. Then activate the extension (left most button). Now imagine the numerical key pad of your PC to be a table. "2" marks the bottom border, "8" the top and so on. Select the cells, press ALT+2 to draw a bottom line, CTRL+2 to pick the linestyle of the bottom line or SHIFT+2 to delete the bottom line etc.
OpenOffice.org (OO.o or OOo) is a cross-platform office application suite available for a number of different computer operating systems. It supports the ISO standard OpenDocument Format (ODF) for data interchange as its default file format, as well as Microsoft Office '97-2003 formats, among many others.
OpenOffice.org was originally derived from StarOffice, an office suite developed by StarDivision and acquired by Sun Microsystems in August 1999. The source code of the suite was released in July 2000 with the aim of reducing the dominant market share of Microsoft Office by providing a free, open and high-quality alternative; later versions of StarOffice are based upon OpenOffice.org with additional proprietary components. OpenOffice.org is free software, available under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL).
The project and software are informally referred to as OpenOffice, but this term is a trademark held by another party, requiring the project to adopt OpenOffice.org as its formal name.
