Last chance resolution

Have you tried changing your Windows setting to a higher or lower resolution to see if tearing still occurs.

Please report bug with explanation of computer manufacturer and model, Intel processor and graphics chip(s), LibreOffice version, resolution settings in which error occurs.

Also, does your computer have a shared graphics engine, say between Intel and nVidia.

If so, check nVidia settings also.

Sorry could not help more, but it appears you have arrived at the point of hardware/software issue unique to your model of computer.

Anyone else having this problem, please confirm bug Thomas generates.

Totally understand your frustration.

See: for current driver.

Also "Difficulties starting LibreOffice (e.g. applications hang) as well as problems with the screen display are often caused by the graphics card driver. If these problems occur, please update your graphics card driver or try using the graphics driver delivered with your operating system. Difficulties displaying 3D objects can often be solved by deactivating the option "Use OpenGL" under 'Tools - Options - LibreOffice - View - 3D view'."


But watch out for:

While it may not necessarily be a 3D problem, graphics, as in display, may be tied together.

Hope this helps.

Screen tearing issue with NVidia may be resolved by changing Vertical Sync to Adaptive.

Start video at  URL below at 40 seconds.

The video is from 2013 and may not quite match, but you get the idea.

Hope this helps.

Am I correct assuming, that this applies ONLY to NVidia graphic cards? My computer has an "Intel HD Graphics 4600" and I cannot find anywhere a setting called "vertical sync"

Thank you.
That link helped me to understand the situation better AND how to get to the setting of my graphics card.

However, changing the settings related to "vertical sync", I believe I can choose between TWO, does NOT help.
The screen tearing still happens as before.

Now I have all that "super power" all over the place and still constantly have to switch between two LO documents (could not yet find the shortcut key for minimizing the window)
to be able to have a look at my text.

Is there anything else I could try?

Good evening from Japan
I do not want to be annoying, but ...
This "screen tearing" (or however it is called) happened (past tense) / happens ONLY with Writer. It did so on ALL computers (using both Windows and Linux) on which I have been using LibreOffice in the past.

It DOES NOT happen in Calc!
Neither does this happen with any other software.

Therefore, the theory about graphic driver, settings etc. somehow is not completely convincing. (Somehow I assume, that the new computer has the newest graphic driver installed.) Accordingly, I still would like to believe, that there must be a "Writer-specific" setting somewhere ....

Probably missing the "point" altogether
