In LO and (UbuntuStudio), whenever I open one of my spread sheets, made years' ago

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.

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.

Thanks for your confirmation, JPS. I can confirm that I get the effect in Writer too. I hadn't 
noticed it before but you're quite right.  Interesting that you get the poor display only in 
UbuntuStudio and even using downloads of LO direct from

I made a fresh, clean installation of UbuntuStudio 20.04.1 at the beginning of August and my 
experience with it so far is that it is the worst since I started with this distro back in 14.04. I 
have some applications that take 32 seconds to start up regardless of whether it is the first start 
or an n'th start since bootup. I had xscreensaver which wouldn't kick in until I disabled the 
startup script that came with the distro. Some applications do start normally but some are always 
slow and some of these slow ones were part of the distribution and not something I installed later.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact announced by UbuntuStudio that their dev's were pretty 
well all working with Kubuntu and the KDE Plasma desktop. 20.04 was their last planned release with 
the XFCE desktop.

Anyway, it does not appear to be a subject for this discussion group and would be more correctly 
dealt with on the Ubuntu forums.

Thanks and best regards,
