Description antonusanov 2020-12-15 14:05:48 UTC
Some fonts in Libreoffice Writer and Calc looks very blurry.
Writer: in text document, in Settings. But after export to PDF these fonts look good (sharp). Fonts in Menus look normal (sharp).
Calc: text in cells looks very blurry. But the same text in the same cell in direct edit mode looks sharp.

Settings in General section: 
Use hardware acceleration: Gray - I can't change it. Changing other options doesn't matter.
Use anti-aliasing = ON
Show preview fonts = ON
Show font antialiasing = ON
from = 8 pixels

Steps to Reproduce:
1.You need open any document in Writer or Calc

Actual Results:
50% texts look blurry. It is difficult to read this text.

Expected Results:
All texts shall be sharp

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
I don't remember exactly, but I think that problem appeared after upgrade to MacOS Big Sur.
LibreOffice 6.xx worked fine on pre Big Sur version of MacOS.
I updated LibroOffice to 7.00, then to 7.0.3 - it did not help.
