In the left treeview go to LibreOffice -> View (4th from top). Here are some settings for LibreOffice (like "use Anti-Aliasing"). If your whole system lacks of Anti-Aliasing (what I don't think ...

This OMG! Ubuntu article says delta: Newer Apps, Larger One side-effect of the ‘bundle’ approach is, naturally, a larger initial package size.
