Description jwlance 2013-01-18 15:02:56 UTC
I am using Ubuntu 12.04 with a GeForce 6200 graphics card.  I have rotated my screen for word processing and Writer and Spreadsheet both are affected by the change.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the NVIDIA drivers, LibreOffice, and done many restarts to no avail.  It is only a LibreOffice issue--no other program is affected--not browsers nor other text editing/spreadsheet software.  

Perhaps it is a hardware issue, but the lack of problems in other software makes me think not.  I am willing to accept if it is, though I would love to use Writer this way.  It is my favorite word processor by far.

Is it possible for you to attach a screenshot of this distorted screen?

Thanks in advance,
