Screenshot of the LibreOffice formula editor UI with sidebar and cropped dropdown
The dropdown field for selecting a category of formula elements is slightly cropped and covered by the white area below it.
It could be relevant that Ubuntu is set to use UI scale 2.0 and LibreOffice is at its default 100% (Settings → View). Changing LibreOffice scale other than default makes it rather worse.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open LibreOffice
2. Insert → Object → Formula
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: 184.108.40.206 release
not reproducible with 220.127.116.11 under Win7x64
does issue persists on your Linux machine using latest LibO version?
set status to NEEDINFO still waiting for user feedback.

This is still the case in LibreOffice Math 18.104.22.168 40m0(Build:2) on Ubuntu 15.04 on a 3200×1800px screen.
The operating system wide UI scale is set to System Settings → Displays → UI scale = 2.0 (corresponds to dconf org.gnome.desktop.interface.scaling-factor=2).
LibreOffice → View → User interface → scale is kept at default 100% because it wouldn't respect the OS setting but add on top of it (resulting in mixed inconsistent 4× scale).
As it seems LibreOffice takes its UI scale cue from somewhere else because changing the operating system setting to 1.0 will still result in a scaled LibreOffice UI with the above bug. Reducing the screen resolution to 1600×900px with UI scale = 1 gives the correct result with the dropdown completely visible.
Made summary more complete (I hope).
Not such screen at home -> can't test.
Best regards. JBF
From the Displays UI I can set the scaling to max. 1,75.
Dconf sez: error: unknown command org.gnome.desktop.interface.scaling-factor=2
No problem with 1,75 scaling in Formula element selection.
