Hello and thank you for the good job. I've been using LibreOffice for many years and I'm very happy with it.

Recently I switched to MacOS for its accesibilty options, and I found a problem. 

I have enablet Follow texto zoom on Accessibility. In Apple apps and many others it works perfectly, but not in LibreOffice. This is a very useful accesibility option for people like me, with sight problemas, and it would be very good to have it on LibreOffice. 

I have my system in Spanish, but here is a screenshot with the option coloured.


I hope I've explained well.

Steps to Reproduce:
Anyone with MacOS can activate it, put a litthe zoom, write in Notes or any other app and later write in LibreOffice. In Notes the text keeps centered, but in LibreOffice the text go out of the screeen. 

Actual Results:  
Text go out of the screen

Expected Results:
Keep the text centered on the screen

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: It's a new user profile.
