When starting LibreOffice portable: LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 (x86) on Windows 7 Pro x64 with screen resolution of 1280x720, LibreOffice startup is at a managed size.
When I attempt to increase the vertical hight of the app window so that I can view all the button options, it expands to a hight larger than my desktop window and the bottom of the window stretches down past the windows bar and below the window.
At this point, the width will reduce in size but the height remains static and there is not way to access the buttons that are off screen.
I ran it in safe mode and the same issue occurs.
I could not check the openGLl issue because I am not authorized to access the openGL addon page and there's only so much I am willing to attempt when dealing with such idiocy as this.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set screen resolution to 1280x720
2. Click on LibreOffice shortcut.
3. After LibreOffice startup has started, click the bottom window border and attempt to lengthen the height.
4. After LibreOffice start up has increased out of control, click on the top window border and attempt to reduce the height.
I would provide screen shots but you do not have an upload link.
And quite frankly, if you cannot understand my previous instructions without asking for more details, you have absolutely no business being a developer.
I expect the height to be adjustable like any reasonable program would be rather than being set to a default height that requires me to increase my screen resolution to the point of my not being able to see and use my computer.
Whoever made this default decision is clearly: A BONAFIDE IDIOT!

Thanks for reporting this issue.
Could you please try to reproduce it with the version 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.
The problem is reproduced with the version at the link 6.4.1.
I wonder if this is a bug in the compiler or the GUI library that is being used?
I know that with Visual Studios, you can set a window to not size,
if this is the case with the GUI Library that LibreOffice uses, and that property is set to resize, then perhaps it's a bug in the library.
[Automated Action] NeedInfo-To-Unconfirmed
I tried with 800x600 and indeed the problem is only visible, if the window is not maximised. For the issue of reaching the application buttons from the start center, there is bug 119447. Would you be happy, if the request in bug 119447 was implemented?
The commit for implementing a minimum height for the Start Center is:
Quoting from the commit msg:
"This minimum size calculated like this:
width: sidebar optimal width + width of text appearing in
the thumbnail view when no recent document is available.
height: menu width + optimal width of GtkBox containing
Note that the minimum height only affects Start Center, not the application windows.
I think we can close this a duplicate of bug 119447
