LibreOffice is an open source, community-developed office productivity

a spreadsheet, a presentation manager, a formula editor, and a drawing
program. LibreOffice replaces OpenOffice and provides a similar but
enhanced and extended office suite.

rendered certain documents containing Polygon images. By tricking a
