Tilde accents displays sometimes displays like a macron diacritic sign.
I realized that many times ã (a tilde) and õ (o tilde) display wrong when I am editing regular documents, for font sizes 12pt and smaller, both regular, italic, bold, bold+italic.
There is no apparent reason that triggers the bug.
I reproduce this bug in other software, like GNU Emacs, so this may be a bug not on libreoffice, but in a font rendering, but I have no knowledge to forward to correct place. I don't knot what is the font rendering library used.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set font to DejaVu Sans Mono (but it is reproducible with other fonts)
2. Copy/paste the following text on Writer
13 12 11 10.5 10
reg ãõ ãõ ãõ ãõ ãõ
it ãõ ãõ ãõ ãõ ãõ
b ãõ ãõ ãõ ãõ ãõ
b+it ãõ ãõ ãõ ãõ ãõ
Set font according to "table" (columns are font sizes, lines are font specs regular, italic, bold, bold+italic) to each group of 2 letters.
3. Ensure magnification 100%.
For DejaVu Sans Mono, observe that tildes become macrons exactly for
õ r11 i11
ãõ bi12 bi11 bi10
Selecting all and changing font change bug reproducion. for example, Liberation Sans change bug to all letters 10pt.
Expected that all tilde accents display correctly.

It seems you're using an old version of LibreOffice. 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. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if the problem went away.
The problem persists exactly as before in latest version. I tested the same odt file from attachment 1.
I guess that the problem is linux specific, on screen font rendering.
Updated my LO to latest as requested.

Peter, unfortunately nothing has happened with this bug report for 6 months. So I'd like to ask, if it is still valid, because 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.
