Mac OS X: LibreOffice windows are blurry on Retina displays

No Comments

It looks like the /Applications/LibreOffice.app/Contents/Info.plist shows 
a "false" value for NSHighResolutionCapable causing it to not use retina 
text rendering.

You need to change this:

    <key>NSHighResolutionCapable</key>
    <false/>

To this:

    <key>NSHighResolutionCapable</key>
    <true/>

Note: if you want to fix an existing copy of LibreOffice, you need to update 
the Info.plist, then rename LibreOffice.app to something else like 
LibreOfficeRetina.app, open the application and see that retina works, then 
close and rename it back to LibreOffice.app.  I'm not sure how else to clear 
the cached value but that works.
