Hello, being an extensive user of LibO rather than iWorks or MSO on my
Mac (OS X 10.6.6), the (only) one thing that tempers delight is the
"blurred" unsharp display of text in documents. Currently, I am writing
rather long reports for my work, and I employed Latin Modern Roman
(version 2 or so) 11pt as the main document text. (I was playing around
with many more fonts, just to mention.) However, whatever font size,
document zoom or user interface zoom I use, the only one usable fonts
are the ones from the DejaVue font family -- yet, also here the display
is far away from a clean sharp display as I can find in Pages or MSW. I
was just wondering whether there is upcoming development on that issue
(obviously only a Mac one), or if there is simple tricks to make fonts
display clear, sharp, and reader-friendly. Thanks for comments and
tipps. Bests, *S*

I was going to try your font here, iMac with 10.6.7, but I don't have it on my system.

Is it a free font that can be downloaded from somewhere? If I did download, it would have to the exact same file as you are using.

Side by side, the LO blank page seems to be slightly grayish, where the Pages is white. That may account for some of the difference.

I used Times Roman, 11 point, and couldn't tell any real difference.

From a cynical point of view, be glad you are not using Windows. LOL They used to have a lousy screen display, I don't know why. I had older computers and operating systems that far exceeded the Windows display. I haven't paid enough attention lately to know if they've solved that issue or not.
