a lot better in

-> There still room to argue 4.0 still producing sub optimal results (see bug 51510). However this would as this point be an real improvement of the current situation

Not your bug and has formally no priority. However this bug simply bad. See bug 51510 and list of see also. Note quite a number of those 'see also' reports by me (for a more realistic view)
There goes something horribly wrong at image format conversion. Used for image compress, image export, or DOCX (for file formats not supported by DOCX format, say SVG (take QR ) or embedded PDF.
Sometimes it looks like compress compressing a the actual screen image painted on screen or some weird thumbnail kind of thing. Or using some kind of StarView media file as intermediary (EMF to JPG example: bug 140918) Results surely bad.
So Skia being fast, and has proper scaling and such, but still having to cope with ugly images in quite a number of cases.
So would really grateful if you could find some time to take a look (or find a reason to take a look :P).

This annoying bug is still there with LibreOffice 18.104.22.168.
To reproduce, open the attached file test-equation.odt and save it as .docx, then open it with LO and see that the SVG graphic is badly blurred. The bad rendering is the same (or worse) in MS Word 2016 as you can see on the screenshot.
So exchanging technical documents that contain SVG graphics with colleagues that work with MS Office is rather problematic.

I don't really see a need for lots of "SVG is terrible" bug reports. Mark as duplicate.
