Unchecking Tools -> Options -> View:  "Use OpenGL for all rendering (on 
restart)" fix (thank you!) in Writer that some numerical dialog box were 
losting the up and down arrows (see, for example, in a writer image the 
size properties boxes, paragraph properties, ...).

I will keep you informed about the stability!


Yes, please do.

p.s. My system hardware is:

- hp Pavillon Sleekbook 15 (product number D5A30EA#ABZ)
- BIOS F.1D (2014-05-28)
- RAM 12 GiByte DDR3

- CPU Type AMD A8-4555M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics

- Graphics Chipset:
-- AMD Radeon (TM) HD 8500M/8700M
--- Memory Size 1024 MB / DDR3
--- Bus Type PCI Express 3.0

-- AMD Radeon HD 7600G + (TM) HD Dual Graphics
--- Memory Size 512 MB / DDR3

This concerns me. The dual GPUs are supposed to be a power saving feature.
But, there is a good chance that with the dual GPU, on execution LibreOffice
is not being assigned to the higher performance AMD Radeon HD 8500M/8700M
series GPU and is running poorly on the HD 7600G series.

There should be a utility with the Radeon software to specify programs that
require execution on the high performance GPU.

Also, would need the content of  the LibreOffice opengl_device.log file as
that should record which GPU and more importantly the driver signature that
LibreOffice uses to enable or disable OpenGL support. 

Another helpful diagnostic utility would be a summary run from the OpenGL
Extensions Viewer by realtech-vr available here:
