Reproduced. Checkbox borders are not visible.

Lowering priority per flowchart:

Windows 8.1 32-bit. LibreOffice 4.4 RC1.

Reproduced : check-boxes and radio buttons aren't visible until they are pointed with the mouse cursor (after that, they became visible), even with different DPI scalings. Multiple dialog boxes are concerned.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice 
(5.1.5 or 5.2.1

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and 
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior

a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
