Border settings not saving in SSRS

This may sound silly to some but I've written a note because I spent time googling and still didn't find an answer.

I wasn't getting very far because I'd even ask the border to be grey and save the project but when I come back to the setting, it's still black.

I found that you have to select a color or expression first, then define which border (top, right, bottom, left) the settings apply to...

Mad. 1. Type your expressions/specify color first:

2. Specify which border of the cell this applies to:
