Does anyone know how to get back extra wide cell border widths in Excel 365.  The documentation makes it look like there is an option for this (the darkest line option looks like excel 2010), but the actual EXCEL 365 application gives very light lines.  It is very wimpy, just like the default Windows 10 colors.

 

Thanks for any help.

Can you please add some screen-shots? Also from the dialog which you use to achieve the effect?

This is for Windows 10 - current release:

Here is the snip of Excel 365 (capture.png after applying the NOT extra wide borders).

Here is the snip of Excel 365 (capture2.png after bringing up the dialog).

 

Well, in any case, installing EXCEL 365 has messed up the color schemes for EXCEL 10 when EXCEL 365 has been installed, and all of my PCs have EXCEL 365 on them.

 

So I will just have to live with it.

 

Thanks
