I have created a style "table header" with background color blue and text white. If I assign it the header cell is not completely filled with background color. When I manually assign the background color to the cell it is filled completely.

Is there a way to modify the style to have the cell filled completely without having to use manual formatting?

Setting the background color in a paragraph style produces the same result as directly setting the backgrond color in the paragraph. In both cases, it's the paragraph's background which is affected, not the cell's background. Since there are no cell styles in Writer, the only way to fill the entire cell is by setting the background for the cell or the entire table.

Thanks, I was afraid it would be like that.
