With LibreOffice (and prior versions going back at least a year), when I scroll down the text gets garbled and takes time to eventually settle.

Is there a fix for this? Alt+Tab to another application and back corrects the picture. But scrolling makes it blurred in this way again. image description

You could try the latest releases, but note that these also have other font rendering issues tdf#122218. What you are reporting seems to be linked to tdf#46988, where a decision was taken to deliberately remove a "smooth scrolling" option from the macOS version of LO, in order to vastly improve performance, and as it turns out, doesn't even appear to work anyway on other OSes.
