Description exup 2012-12-10 12:12:23 UTC
Currently running Mint 14 Nadia.
Using the default libre office writer.
Opening a document I am unable to see sections of text unless I scroll up or down. Or click outside of the paragraph.
As soon as I start to type that sentence will disappear, and I have to type blind.
When I click away to another part of the document it re-appears.

I have opened a new blank document and its the same problem.

I dont see this problem in other applications, eg browsers, terminals etc.

I am running openSUSE 12.2 with LibreOffice version
I had this problem which made editing documents very difficult.  I then installed LibreOffice Version (Build ID: 408fe71bd18616c467b3dcd7ab6756528ffcae2) in the hope that this would be fixed.  It may be a little bit better, but the problem is still there.

I don't know if this is related, but in Calc if you highlight rows while moving up, the row numbers also disappears.
