Description cesneault1 2015-11-07 14:51:00 UTC
Ubuntu 15.10
Libre Office

Tools > options > LibreOffice > View > Interface scaling

Scaling works for normal range, but after set to 300% cannot reduce
Drop-down menu overlays options text box
Cannot enlarge options box enough.

Uninstall and reinstall from Ubuntu repository keeps same settings

As a workaround, you can rename your LO directory profile (see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#GNU.2FLinux)

Would be good to limit that setting, to prevent this inconvenience..
Please change the issue to such a request.
(Could it be that I've seen an issue on this already?)

Max scaling is 400%, see http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/cui/uiconfig/ui/optviewpage.ui#7

ux-team: at which max should we put this?

UI scaling was remove with 5.2 (bug 101646). I believe those tweaks belong to the OS but when it's decided to bring it back all freedom to the user is my first idea (400%). On the other hand, with this setting the interface becomes too large to show the options dialog and reverting is not possible. But that depends on the screen, and on high resolutions 4x might be sane. No idea. 

Closing the issue since scaling was dropped.
