Hi :)  
It might be a graphics-driver issue.  It sounds like the problem only occurs at certain levels of 
zoom on certain screen-resolutions.  I'd take the Tommy Cooper approach and just avoid those 
combinations.  You know it is displaying properly on other people's machines so the only person 
it's annoying is you.  Your documents are fine.  

Given the poor support for most graphic card from most manufacturers i would probably avoid trying 
to fix this issue because i've often found that trying to fix that sort of thing breaks the whole 
system to a point where i have to reinstall the whole OS.  That is probably due my low level of 
skill on the command-line.  

If you really want to try to fix it by trying out other drivers than i recommend setting up a new 
partition and installing the same OS onto that and experiment with that one.  Also use the openSUSE 
forums and documentation to try to avoid too much pain.  Once you find the answer you will be able 
to use that answer on the main system you rely on to work.  However, like i said, for something 
like this i really would bother.  If it was breaking my movie watching or game playing then i might 
make more of an effort to fix it.  For occasional problems in some word-processed documents i would 
just work-around by zooming in or out a bit.  

Intel, AMD and NVidea often seem to be competing for last place for their support of Gnu&Linux 
although that has changed a bit in the last few years.  Intel seem to have won last place until 
very recently.  I lost track about a year ago as everything magically started working on my system. 

Apols and regards from 
Tom :)

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Re: Normal font look bold with 100% scale

The text prints out correctly. It also looked OK when I opened the document
in MS Office on Windows.
I'm having the same display problem with both my screens.

In these days when trying to save the environment and use less paper it is
important to have a document that looks OK on the screen. Though it is only
in LibreOffice this happens. When I export the document to PDF it looks
normal. However it should also look normal when editing the document.

I am using LibreOffice 4.0:build-304 (Bygg-ID: 400m0(Build:304)) 
Running OpenSuse 12.3 with KDE 4.10.4. Installed LibreOffice from Opensuse
LibreOffice repository.
Graphic Card: Intel 4000
Screen 1: Fujitsu Lifebook laptop screen
Screen 2: Samsung SyncMaster SA450 24" 1920x1200
