I've been having a problem where all text is twice the size it should be. For example Arial 12 shows up on screen as 24 pixels high. On the Windows version, Arial 12 is 12 pixels high. I have zoom set to 100% and user interface scaling set to 100% (the default settings). I can delete the LibreOffice application support folder and the preferences files and it still does this. It makes everything in Writer and Calc huge. Does anyone else have this problem?

I understand the difference between points and pixels and that Macs and PC have different internal PPI values. I have 1080x1920 monitors attached to my PC and my Mac. LibreOffice on my Mac displays text twice as large (in pixels) at the same point value versus the PC. The monitors aren't the same physical size, but I'm not talking about size in inches. I took screenshots of both to compare on the same monitor. It makes using it on my Mac so difficult, that I just don't. Unfortunately, changing the zoom setting to 50% on the Mac (which makes it look the same as 100% on the PC) gets saved in the document. When I open the document in Windows, I would have to adjust the zoom back. I have to maximize a text document's window just to barely fit an 8.5x11 width wise on the screen at 100%. Spreadsheets are displayed twice as large, too. I have never noticed any other application displaying text twice as large like this. I was hoping there was a setting that I could change to alter this behavior permanently.
