I can't reproduce with

with or without OpenGL enable.

Please test with a clean profile Menu/Help/Restart in safe mode

 This is a new problem. I went back and tried  it on LO 5.0, 5,3, 5.4 and now, 6.0. It is a new problem that does not show in previous versions. I'm not going to reset the profile again until I'm ready to go through the hassle of getting the history of the locations of all the files that are in that profile.
 I there a way to reset the profile without losing the history of the file locations?

Setting back to unconfirmed, someone else needs to confirm it.

Sure, just rename the profile, you can always delete the new one, and name it back. Testing in safe mode should be equally good, without the hassle of touching the user profile manually.

Would be nice if you included the exact LibreOffice version, ie. paste the whole block of text from Help -> About, and a few words about your OS, which you haven't mentioned, either.

Thank you for reporting the bug. To be certain the reported issue is not
related to corruption in the user profile, could you please reset your
Libreoffice profile ( https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile ) and

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the issue is still present

No response in 6 months, so let's close.
