Use hardware acceleration

Directly accesses hardware features of the graphical display adapter to improve the screen display. The support for hardware acceleration is not available for all operating systems and platform distributions of LibreOfficeDev.

Use Anti-Aliasing

When supported, you can enable and disable anti-aliasing of graphics. With anti-aliasing enabled, the display of most graphical objects looks smoother and with less artifacts.

Use OpenGL for all rendering (on restart)

Use the high performance Open Graphics Library (OpenGL) to render all visual elements of the application, including windows, menus, toolbars and icons. OpenGL uses the computer graphics device to accelerate the graphics rendering. If the device is blacklisted (see below) this option will not be effective.

Force OpenGL even if blacklisted (on restart)

Forces the use of OpenGL even if the graphics device is blacklisted. A device is blacklisted when it is buggy or may render graphics with poor quality.
