I have a new PC (Lenovo Yoga 2 pro) with Windows 10 installed. When I open any of my .odp presentations with Libre office Impress and switch to the full screen mode (F5), the picture becomes broken showing two fragments of the right parts of the slides in the right and left parts of the screen. This happens both with versions 4.4 and Any ideas about this? I have also tried Apache OpenOffice 4.1 and its shows the full screen mode correctly.

I can confirm this issue on Win8 with Libre Office

I'm seeing what sounds like the same behavior on a new Dell XPS 15 running Windows 10. I tried both Libre Office and 4.4.5

I can confirm this on a Lenovo Yoga 2, Win 8.1 and LibreOffice Interestingly, it worked for external screens/beamer up to roughly 720p, and would give broken presentations with 1080p and above. Disabling the hardware acceleration solved the issue.

Occasionally found solution to this problem: In Tools -> Options -> View uncheck box "Use hardware acceleration"

Works perfectly. Thanks a lot (I don't have enough points to upvote).

This still happens with LibreOffice + Surface Pro 4 + Windows 10 as of June 2017. Turning off OpenGL first then Hardware Acceleration solved it.
