In LO and (UbuntuStudio), whenever I open one of my spread sheets, made years' ago but in weekly use, I find that the font name and the font size is slightly corrupted in the formatting toolbar.

The size should be 10 but it looks like both 20 and 10 written in the same space at same time. Equally the font name should be Liberation Sans but it too looks sometimes like a combination of two names. This is less common that the font size corruption.

If I highlight a cell and click the font size dropdown, the correct size is clearly displayed. If I then select another cell, instead of displaying 10 it looks like a mix of 10 and 12 (not 20 and 10 as when first opened) until I again click on the dropdown.

If I close the formatting bar and reopen it, the corruption is back.

Has anybody else had this problem? Is it perhaps a distro introduced phenomenon?

Hi Philip,

Exactly the same issue here but not only in Calc but also in Writer, Impress and Draw. No old documents needed to reproduce it. Just open any of these modules, type in some characters so that you have at least two different fonts and two different font sizes. Then point the cursor in the text to the different fonts and font sizes and that's it.

I am currently using Xubuntu 20.04, Ubuntu Studio 20.04 and Ubuntu Budgie 20.04. I downloaded LO, LO and LO from and installed them in an external hard drive so that I can access these installations from any distro. The issue only occurs when running these installations of LO 6.3 or LO 6.4 from Ubuntu Studio; it does never happen with LO 7.0 (regardless of the distro) and it also never happens when running any of these same three installations of LO from Xubuntu or from Ubuntu Budgie.

Best regards,
