.png showing the blurry text styles list
The lists of text sizes and text styles in the toolbar look blurry with a scaling of 200% on a 4k HiDPI display.
I attach two screenshots to demonstrate the problem.
By comparison, the text fonts list looks crisp.

Please provide some details:
1. Which OS is used?
2. How did you set the said scaling (which tool was used and which settings there set to what)?
3. Full content of Help->About, including VCL plugin info
This could allow others to try to reproduce this problem, which could be OS/DM, or VCL-dependent.
Yes, sorry, I forgot to specify that I am on debian 10 using wayland.
I set the scaling to 200% in the gnome control panel, display section.
Build ID: 1:6.1.4-3
Threads CPU : 8; OS : Linux 4.19; UI Render : par défaut; VCL: gtk3;
Locale : fr-FR (fr_FR.UTF-8); Calc: group threaded
Do you reproduce with daily master? Easiest is https://libreoffice.soluzioniopen.com/index.php/daily-version/.
Yes, this also happens with master.
And to be more precise, this only happens when you change the scaling (from 100% to 200%) when LO is running.
If you restart LO, the problem is removed.
And contrary to what I said, this also happen with the text font list.
Frederic, it seems, that nobody could confirm the described bug.
A new major release of LibreOffice is available since this bug was reported. Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.
I can confirm this bug is still present with 220.127.116.11.
Actually, this happens sometimes when I change the monitor, from the one integrated into my laptop, to my external monitor.
Note that I also have with problem with other gtk applications, like nautilus.
So this is probably a gtk issue.
What if you try 6.4 alpha1 http://libreoffice.soluzioniopen.com/
by launching with
(after making the file executable)
I experienced the same thing when upgrading from LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 to 6.3.5:
macOS Catalina 10.15.3
Mac mini (2018)
3 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i5
16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4
Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB
DELL P2715Q (3840 x 2160) Resolution Default for display
From About LibreOffice:
CPU threads: 6; OS: Mac OS X 10.15.3; UI render: default; VCL: osx;
Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US
The PNG files attached by the original poster show exactly what I experienced: UI text is clear, but context text is quite blurry.
I tried various suggestions I found in the community forum, but the only way I could fix it was to revert LibreOffice 22.214.171.124.
I've been using LibreOffice for years and have never previously experienced anything like this. Also, I'm not having issues with any other apps I use.
Sorry, typo, should read:

As you are a macOS user, it is possible you are hitting bug 122218, which is fixed for the upcoming 6.4.2.
You could test by running a macOS daily build: https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/current.html

Setting to NEEDINFO until reporter comes back to us
Apologies, I'm neither an early adopter nor a power user, and rely on LibreOffice for my volunteer work, so I was hesitant to install the newest version, but I just went ahead and installed 6.4.2 and the text looks fine. Thank you.
So, I cannot reproduce with 6.4 when I use SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=kf5.
Note however that in this case, the UI does not scale with the Gnome Settings.
The problem is still present when I use the standard gtk UI.
I would like to emphasis again that this problem is actually really minor, since it happens only when you change the scaling, and disappear when you restart LO.
