If you updated your mac to macOS Big Sur then you have problems with LibreOffice

First problem - only LibreOffice 7.0 and newer works on macOS 11 Big Sur. Nobody knows why. So if you use older version you should update your LibreOffice to 7.0.3

Second problem - if you have a Retina screen (HiDPI), then you can't use LibreOffice, because all text will be blured. There is a bug 138122

So, Apple, thank you!


  1. I think apple are trying to force their own software on mac owners more unless its on the appstore by making it harder for developers. I noticed the blurring effect on calc straight away after updating to bigsur and thought this can only be caused by apple. I stay clear of their propriety software as they don't support open doc, will be avoiding apple hardware in future.

  2. > only LibreOffice 7.0 and newer works on macOS 11 Big Sur.

    On my Big Sur LibreOffice is running.

    1. I tried download and install a latest 6.4 version but it isn't start on macOS 11. I tested my all installed LO version starting from 5.2 and they aren't work there.
      So I happy that you can use 6.4.

    2. Same BIG SUR 11.0.1 problem. I updated my LibreOffice ver to ver and it seems to work fine so far.
