Description Mark van Rossum 2020-08-20 21:59:44 UTC

I often change my screen DPI because I switch laptop screen. This causes screen corruption in all components of libreoffice when you open a file after changing.

Actual Results:
- open a.odt

- change screen DPI.
I use mate, so I use
> gsettings set org.mate.font-rendering dpi  150

- open b.odt

Now b.odt shows screen corruption (cursor out of place; keyboard input does not appear).

a.odt for some reason remains fine.

So it appears that the new DPI is only partly adapted.

Switching back the DPI to the original value does not change it. a.odt remains fine, b.odt corrupt.

Expected Results:
no corruption

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
I use the stock intel X11 driver.
