Created attachment 133342 [details]
Not possible to save XML after edit

After I edit the attached file, and try to save it, it says: "Error when trying to save text_ui_news document: Error: Writing error. Not possible to write the file." (I'm using Hungarian language, so I translated the error message the best I could).

I tried a lot of previous versions of LibreOffice, stable and beta, still the same problem.
Turned off antivirus, UAC, I'm the only user. File is not write protected.

If I use Microsoft Excel, instead of LibreOffice, there is no problem when saving the file after edit.

I can reproduce it in

Build ID: 74d2e606fd3605fe0a585f596eaa215ae4e20d18
CPU Threads: 4; OS Version: Linux 4.8; UI Render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
Locale: fo-FO (ca_ES.UTF-8); Calc: group

However, MSO Excel 2010 doesn't even open it alleging there's a problem in the table.
Are you sure you attach the correct file ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' once the requested document is provided.

I haven't tried Microsoft Office 2010, I'm using Microsoft Office 2016, and there's no problem with that, so editing and saving works there. However when trying the same with LibreOffice, it fails to save.

@Kohei, I thought you could be interested in this issue...
Comment 10 Kohei Yoshida 2019-08-15 13:05:37 UTC
This is unfortunately not a bug, but a side affect of how the current filter management system works.  "Fixing" this would unfortunately involve a large scale (and risky) refactoring that I'm not personally interested in partaking, and personally it's not worth the risk.
Comment 11 Kohei Yoshida 2019-08-16 11:47:22 UTC
There was a duplicate bug filed for this, and it was closed as NOTABUG.  I can't find that issue now, but let me just close this one the same way as well.
