Confirmed. To my untrained eye this doesn't look like thinner fonts (I've compared two screenshots and the same text in the about dialog takes up exactly the same width), but rather like they're not antialiased under wayland.

The bug is simply that fonts look 'thinner' than they should in the LibreOffice snap on Wayland, and it's only the snap that's affected. --- After using `sudo add-apt-repository ppa:communitheme/ppa` and adding the packages there, and then installing `ppa-purge`, removing the packages, and using `ppa-purge` on the PPA, my fonts in the LibreOffice snap seemed to break. I've given an example of 'a quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog' and a screenshot of a Writer document and its PDF export in Document Viewer side by side. ``` $ snap info libreoffice tracking: candidate installed: 220.127.116.11 (47) 408MB - $ snap version snap 2.31 snapd 2.31 series 16 ubuntu 17.10 kernel 4.13.0-32-generic $ snap info core tracking: candidate installed: 16-2.31 (4017) 85MB core ``` Also applies to libreoffice 18.104.22.168 (46, stable) on core 16-2.31 (4017, candidate) and core 16-2.30 (3887, stable).
