Description nora 2017-12-03 00:38:20 UTC
When OpenGL is disabled, most things, like the tool bars (the main one, or the ones for the formula) flicker as I go across them with my mouse. It looks like they have a fit. As soon as I stop moving my mouse, it stops flickering. The same happens when I scroll through things, like the languages. I often change languages on my documents, so I have to scroll through them and just little window where I am scrolling starts flickering. Something similar happens when I want to include or edit a formula in a text document. The formula editor starts up and at first it flickers really hard. Then it stops. As soon as I have OpenGL enabled, this stops. However, it now starts lagging. I move my mouse across the tool bar and the response is late.  

Actual Results:  
Intense flickering in case of disabled OpenGL, lagging in case of enabled 

Expected Results:
no flickering, normal operation. 

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

A longstanding, known, issue. The only workaround is using OpenGL. The lag with OpenGL enabled is fixed on master, LibreOffice 6.0b1 and will also be gone with the upcoming release of LibreOffice 5.4.4
