    I think I've found a bug in Pages, and was hoping someone else could verify it.

    The steps:

    Insert a table.
    Create enough rows such that the table flows onto at least one more page.
    Click on the header row to select the table.
    Reset the stroke weight to something LESS than one point.

    Now, print preview the results and look at the second page.

    When I do this, all of the vertical lines are missing and the horizontal lines after the first page are messed up. This is a completely reproducible bug. Setting the stroke weight to one point or above fixes it.

    I'm on it, IJ; us Pages supporters gotta stick together ;)

    When I click on the header row, should it change all of the rows' weights, or just the header? I've not used tables like this before in Pages so I'm a bit at sea.

    Edit: If I select the entire table and make it 0.25pt for example, I see the exact problem as you do.

    Edit#2: I only see it for 0.5pt and smaller. 0.75 works fine.

    Thanks, you are right -- it's okay at .75, but not below. So it really is a bug. I thought maybe it was a problem with my printer driver. I'll report it to Apple.

    I will too, just so they hear it from multiple sources :)

    Thanks! Maybe other Pages users can also drop Apple a note about this.
