Screenshot of the broken lines

Sometimes, after I scroll or navigate using the navigator panel to another section of the document, the text lines will look like they were cut in half. To clear up the display I used to close the document and re-open it. Now I see that I can also clear it by switching to Web Layout and then back to Print Layout. I have attached a screenshot.

Hi Costin,

Thank you for reporting the bug. Does switching to another application and switching back not fix the issue? Does it happen with all files you use or in a particular file? Which version of Windows are you running?
Comment 2 Costin 2015-09-21 17:48:30 UTC
No, switching to other applications and back does not solve the issue. Here is a small screen recording I did switching between apps after I last encountered this bug:http://screencast.com/t/aKcgD4UqcF (you have to let it buffer first).

I am not sure about other files, because I've been mainly working on one specific file ever since I installed LibreOffice. I am running Windows 7 Professional on 64 bits, Service Pack 1, with 12 GB RAM, installed on a solid-state drive.

Hi Costin,

The screencast seems to look like there was a problem with the line spacing. Is it possible for you to share the document so we can look into the exact cause of the problem.

I guess this has to be thrown back to NEEDINFO :)

Set to NEEDINFO.
Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the document.
