Good evening
After Windows XP all Windows versions, AND all the Linux versions I have
tried too, are obsessed with making the display of screen fonts
as blurred and ugly as possible. Dozen of hours searching the net,
asking the technical support of my computers, asking computer specialist ...
led to the conclusion: there is NO way to fix this.

Here one "question" related to Calc.
I use Calc regularly. But I also use on my old computers Lotus123.
(I know, it is very old and "discontinued". That does not prevent it
from being VERY helpful and good.
In some ways much better than Calc, Excel or any other spreadsheet
application I know of.)

On a Windows XP machine:
Lotus123 line graph -> individual data points represented as squares
(the computers choice, not mine);
* these little squares in Lotus 123 have clear, distinct vertical and
horizontal borders.
A similar graph, with similar squares in Calc has "shadows" around 2 of
the four sides = disappearance/display is blurred.
Since the display is made of little squares anyway, what exactly is the
advantage of having the display blurred???
If Lotus123 CAN display these squares like they would look when printed
in a book,
why can't Calc do that???
Computer, monitor, OS etc. ... everything else is the same, I presume
nobody can blame my monitor, graphic card or whatever.

Is there any way of telling Calc (preferably LibreOffice in general!) of
displaying clear, distinct images (graphics, characters .. everything)?

Thank you.
