LibreOffice tiny scrollbar

Hello

I want to change the size of my scroll bar in Libre office because it is way to small (almost invisible)

see this Screen shot:

by the way I am using an 4k Monitor
What can I do to change this thing in Garuda Linux?
it seems to be a quite common Problem
but there is no real Solution that works on my Machine

Thanks for the Help in advance

THIS is my Libre Office version:

You can change your libre themes in the the libre settings. Maybe you can try that.

Nothing changes in Libre Office.

maybe I should notice that the scroll bar always has bin this tiny.
I mean since I use Garuda (2Years, at least one re installation in this time).
So i guess it is a configuration Problem.

I mean I can not be the Only Person running Garuda on a 4k Screen having this Problem,
maby someone can tell me how he fixed this.

If Iā€™m not mistaken, that also depends on the global theme. There is no setting in LibreOffice to change that.

You are not the only one and it is not a Garuda issue either, there are several threads on the wild_wild_web about your problem, have you already looked for it? Workarounds are also mentioned there, for example changing certain GTK configs.
Does that work? No idea, the threads are just as old as the problem with the small scrollbars in LibreOffice.

Open a feature request at libreoffice :slight_smile:
