Reason: Using the [rimg] tags (for remote images) makes your image appear directly inside the post.

Ime, LO does some funny things with font rendering etc. I am currently using LO on LM18.3-xfce, and have adjusted LO's user-interface-"View" properties as this screenshot shows ...


Some experimentation may be needed, but in general i'm happy with font rendering on my Dell 20" display (1900x1200 pix). Btw: the fonts i'm using are Ubuntu's -- i found that they have finer granularity than the Noto fonts you're using.
