I’m using LibreOffice Impress for presentations including the TexMaths plugin for LaTeX integration (the integrated formula editor is not bad at all, especially its slightly latex-similar syntax is quite nice, but TexMaths’ formulas simply look much better). However, there is a problem with the font rendering: In the editing window everything looks perfect, but switching to presentation mode will display extremely ugly-looking fonts (not even anti-aliasing is missing, everythings looks pretty much like an extremely-low resolution scan) while the latex svg graphics look perfect.
I tried to find some help regarding this issue and I found a few comments that the hardware acceleration causes these issues. Hence, I deactivated the hardware acceleration and the fonts are rendered correctly. However, now all my TexMaths svg graphics look ugly. I tried to solve this issue as well, but I can only conclude that either I can enable the hardware acceleration and my regular fonts look ugly or disbale it and my latex stuff looks ugly… rather annoying :-/
More precisely, I’m running a Windows 10 / Linux dual boot setup and this problem only appears with LibreOffice 5.3.3 (x64). If I open my presentation with the Linux version of LibreOffice (current version 18.104.22.168 from ubuntu 16.04’s repositories), I can do both, enable or disable the hardware acceleration, and my fonts look fine in both setups. My TexMaths figures look ugly as well when hardware acceleration is disabled, but this is not a problem, since there is no need to disbale the hardware acceleration. Hence, I have to conclude that there is something wrong with the font rendering if the hardware acceleration is enabled. Further, since in editing mode everything looks fine with enabled hardware acceleration, this issue only appears in presentation mode.
Can somebody help me out how to get nicely looking fonts with enabled hardware acceleration with the Windows version of LibreOffice Impress, too?
Thanks in advance!
