What do you mean by "disable font rendering" - which does not make sense as it would leave a blank page.
Are you talking about disabling the new font rendering engine?
There is an advanced setting for that.

I want to disable Fonts Anti-Aliasing. In LibreOffice >Tools>Options>Advanced>Open Expert Configuration?org.openoffice.Office.Common>View>FontAntiAliasing FontAntiAliasing:MinPixelHeight>short>900 FontAntiAliasing:Enabled>boolean>false

On Windows builds at, with OpenGL rendering the horizontal scaling of glyphs has been moved from DirectWrite to GDI+ calls and so should match the rendering of Default.

LibreOffice Table vertical text in Writer, No Anti-aliasing.

I have also this problem. Smoothed fonts let my eyes burn! I have to switch back to LO 5.2 until it is fixed!

In the menu Tools:Options:LibreOffice:View:User Interface, there is supposed to be a checkbox "Screen font antialiasing". If disabling that checkbox doesn't seem to work, then you could try another thing: Below the same checkbox there is an editfield called "from:", where you can specify the smallest font size for which to apply antialiasing. If you enter in that editfield for example "900 pixels" , then only fonts with sizes larger than 899 pixels will be antialiased...
