Install of 5.4.1 causes disappearance of text in LO Writer files

I installed 5.4.1 to my ThinkPad SL510 running Windows 7. Now I can't see
most of the data--text--in my LO Writer files; most show a sentence a two,
where before there were paragraphs and pages of text. Help. What's going on?

I uninstalled 5.4.1 and installed 5.3.6, but to no avail. Is there a known
issue? I have NEVER had such a catastrophic issue with LO Writer before
this. CALC seems to be evincing similar behavior. Please advise.

Re: Install of 5.4.1 causes disappearance of text in LO Writer files

LibreOffice Windows builds have ongoing issue with the change at LibreOffice
5.3 to more DirectWrite and Direct2D based font rendering.  tdf#112486
<https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112486>  . You can drop
back to 5.2.7 if functional for you.

Otherwise believe the issue you are having was resolved for most folks as
for  tdf#107166 <https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=107166>
, with some _still_ requiring driver updates for their GPUs to correctly
render with DirectWrite.  

I expect you would benefit from driver update for the GMA 4500HD GPU as that
iGPU would probably not be capable of running LibreOffice in OpenGL mode.
Unfortunately you would have to manually update the driver update as Lenovo
does not support it well.

Re: Install of 5.4.1 causes disappearance of text in LO Writer files

Okay, thanks, your response is extremely helpful. Regressing to 5.2.7 will
definitely be optimal for me, right now.

Please, where do I find a downloader for 5.2.7? I checked the main download
page, FAQs, and Wiki FAQs, but I don't see an offering for versions prior to
5.3.6. Thanks.

Re: Install of 5.4.1 causes disappearance of text in LO Writer files

Hi.
I had to help a work colleague this week where most of the text
disappeared from his previously working document.
Turns out the document was in courier font and win 10 doesn't have
courier and LO didn't substitute a font.

I did ctl-A and changed the font to one available and all became clear.
