I have reloaded and still nothing using 5.1.2 on windows 10.
Hello, I hope someone will read this! I have the same problem, but I can offer more information:
as I was upgrading my computer to Windows 7, I noticed this problem occurred after I (finally) found the correct driver for my laptop (ASUS K50C) graphic’s card (sis).
The problem also occurs in Libreoffice safe mode, and it occurs even if I try the “user-old” renaming method.
It does not occur if I open Libreoffice after I restart my computer in Safe Mode.
So, I am guessing it has to do wit my graphics card, but for the life of me I don’t know what to do about it.
Needless to say, Libreoffice is unusable: I don’t see my text (it’s there, I can see the red squibbles form the spellcheck and the number of pages is the same) and I don’t see any text on any Menus, either.
Can anyone help??
Thanks in advance, Valentina
There were issues concerning the option
‘Tools’>‘Options’>‘LibreOffice’>‘View’>‘Use OpenGL for all rendering’
If enabled missing or badly rendered menu entries occurre. It may have been a problem with the blacklist graohics drivers.
Try to disable the mentioned option. (And report here, please.)
You may make unaccessible your user profile following the advice here. If you call a working version of LibO subsequently it will create a new user profile set to defaults with every respect. With V5.2 or higher the OpenGL option should default to ‘disabled’.
Edit: I can see them in Safe Mode though! I’ll try it, thank you
Unfortunately, having NO text in the resident Libreoffice menus either, means that I can’t access the menus and options because I don’t know what they are
The problem does not occur in Openoffice, if that’s any help at all.
Quoting @Valentina1: “I have reloaded and still nothing using 5.1.2 on windows 10.”
I didn’t clearly understand this.
However: To install an older version again, you will have to uninstall the previously installed younger version in advance.
OOo (AOO) does not use OpenGL at all as far as I know.
Please also note the addendum to my above answer.
I know this is old, but the problem seems to have occurred for me anew with 7.0.0 (x64) and 184.108.40.206 (x64) [Windows 7, AMD Radeon HD 8750]
I rebooted into safe mode:
Windows Key + R → msconfig → /boot\ → [x] Safe boot → restart
The text rendered.
I can’t seem to post an image, so, if you want to try it without rebooting into safe mode:
Alt+F12 top open Options [or Tools (3rd from the right), then Options (at the bottom)]
View (When the top item on the left is expanded, it’s 3rd option under it)
In the top right section, UN-check the 3rd checkbox down (Use Skia for all rendering)
Undo the msconfig option to boot into safe mode if you did, then restart.
The text renders correctly for me.
