When you click "MATH Formula Doc" and see a new document and area with tools.
The area where displayed variants of formulas, the windows with variants is really so blinking. And when you change a kind of formulas, the area is still blinking.
You mean when you move your mouse over them, they are flashing/refreshing annoyingly?
I can confirm that on Windows, but not on Linux.
Lowering priority as this is just a small eyesore: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/images/0/06/Prioritizing_Bugs_Flowchart.jpg

That will only occur when Tools -> Options -> Advanced: "Enable Experimental Features" is checked on, activating the non-double buffered "Visual" formula editor.
In normal mode, with our without the formula cursor active, there is no visual annoyance.
Please retest both with and without Enable Experimental Features to see the difference.
At some point work is needed to resolve the display paint buffering issue.

You are right. No blinking for me on Windows, LibO 4.4.1.

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.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (5.0.5 or 5.1.2 https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
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
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System
Please DO NOT
- Update the version field
- Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
- 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

This remains a valid issue. AFIR it is an issue with lackof double buffering when in the experimental visual mode.
Commits implementing HarfBuzz common layout for bug 89870 have resolved this.
Using HarfBuzz common layout with OpenGL rendering lack of double buffering is no longer a problem.
With GDI+ default rendering still a bit too much flicker. But for folks with OpenGL rendering capabilities this is fixed.
Although it still needs some work in general the "visual" editor could probably be moved from experimental feature status with this change in layout engine.
