Format the headers/columns of a matrix in paginated reports in report builder



I am trying to design a matrix in paginated reports (using power bi report builder). The design requires that the rows have borders and the columns are split by leaving some blank spaces between them. Since there are no blank space border, I have used white column border (right border using white color) to induce a blank space in the columns. See the attached image.




I have done it for the  groups in the headers (columns) as well as the cells in the value area. It seems to have worked in the value area but there are no blank space in the header area. Look at the image below




As you can see, there is a clear white space between two columns in the value area (its actual white border) but in the header area, there is no division. I even increase the white border size in the header to 10pt but i dont see a clear white space in the headers as we can see in the value area.


This is the property that I have used




I would appreciate if someone can help give a a clue.
