I think this is intentional for work on bug 119447 with Heiko's https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/134867

to limit vertical space used by SC sidebar, scaling via a "font multiplier" was reduced, so the text will be a smaller point size when rendered.

Comment 2 Heiko Tietze 2022-05-31 13:12:47 UTC
Yes, by design. Font is still at 120% (was 140).
Comment 3 Timur 2022-05-31 14:02:22 UTC
Hardly visible, can it be at least bold?

Can look into the bold idea.

It's pretty small (In reply to Timur from comment #3)
> Hardly visible

It's to small for me taste.. it not possible to detect the maximum screen size and adapt the start center accordantly 

And how common is 768 resolution these day's. Are those panels still being produced? The bug itself is already 4 years old..

Font was scaled to 140% and is now at 120%. I wonder if your taste is truly affected or if you are just allergic to changes. 

Disclaimer: please take this positively, same happens to me all the time. If you have arguments I could try to find a solution.

At least for Writer, Calc.... not for Document, Spreadsheet.
I don't know what more to say than hardly visible and unpleasantly tiny. 
I'd rather see an option here. That's philosophy I guess "why option for all".. because it's better to have an option for those with small screen than to have a single solution that's probably inconvenient for a majority of users.
