I have a macbook pro 13", 10.6.7, and all my fonts are sharp in LO 3.3.2, even on the small screen. Can you use the application Grab to provide an illustration of the blurred text. Have you got "Use LCD font smoothing.." ticked under System Preferences> Appearance

Hi Steve, I didn't find any restrictions concerning attachments on this mailing list, so I try my best. Attached a PNG file, upper half with a screen shot of LibO 3.3.1., lower half with one of Pages. Both display some text in either Latin Modern Roman 11 (upper) or Times 11 (lower). Note that the Pages page had to be scaled to 150% to achieve the same size on the screen as with LibO 100% (document scaling and user interface scaling). I am aware that this PNG is no high end image, however, if you zoom to 100% the differences becomes apparent. In the upper picture m's, o's, everything seems to have a grey shade, the characters seem to be plotted twice in slightly different positions, while in the lower half (Pages) all characters stand clearly in line, have clear shapes, are generally better readable. Note that for me this is no point to trash LibO, however, just that you say that you don't see any difference on your machine makes me curious. The "Use LCD font..." option is checked, so are the anti-aliasing options in LibO. *S*
