I'm running (x64) on windows 10 version 1703 build 15063.632

My machine has a 4k screen and I have really bad scaling issues using libre office calc. For example, the point that the mouse cursor points hovers over is not the point that gets selected when I click. So if I click on a cell, then a cell two up from that cell is selected instead. The menu bar is also not visible - the bar with File, Edit etc... on it.

Is there a setting I can change to fix this, calc is pretty much unusable? I've tried all the windows scaling override settings.

Please test if changing OpenGL option Menu/Tools/Options/LibreOffice/View.

Hi, thanks for your response. Changing the opengl option makes no difference the problem persists with opengl enabled and disabled.

Have you set up some scale on the screen configuration?

If you mean the windows screen configuration, no I'm using the recommended scaling that it defaults to. 250% on my 4k monitor and 100% on my HD monitor. Moving the app between the monitors makes no difference.

Have you tested changing the screen scale from 250% to a lower value like 100% or 150%?

Tested changing the scale to 100% on the 4k screen. It doesn't make a difference.

Then please report the bug LibreOffice feedback, add in the report the file C:\Users\USUARIO\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\4\cache\opengl_device.log

Exact same problem here. No idea how to easily create documents apart from buying MS office.
