Out of nowhere, my entire LibreOffice suite looks off. Essentially, it looks like the DPI settings just for those programs are out of sort -- the screen is blurry, the File/Edit/View menus aren't there, the mouse won't highlight the correct cell, etc... The only exception is when I start it up in safe mode. I have gone through all of the troubleshooting options, and uninstalled and reinstalled, and I still have the same issue. This is a standard install with no extensions or anything added on, and this is only an issue on my laptop and not my desktop.

In the meantime, is it safe to work on files in safe mode and save them?

Adding my graphics driver to the openGL blacklist solved the problem for me:

C:\Program Files\LibreOffice 5\share\opengl\opengl_blacklist_windows.xml ... <entry os="all" vendor="intel"> <device id="all"/> </entry> ...

For me, as I was using plasma on a hidpi screen, setting the SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk environment variable fixed it.
