Description coocoolatte 2017-05-26 19:56:24 UTC
When repeating several times in an .xlsx file the sequence:
1. clic on a cell
2. select the whole cell content from within the cell content bar
3. pasting into another cell

LibreOffice Calc randomly -say once or twice a day- freezes. I can only kill the process or wait for a popup stating that the process does not respond any more and proposing to wait or kill. Waiting several minutes never solved the problem.

The .xlsx file weighs 51 kiB, 7 sheets of pure text with less than 20 conditional formatting rules, no formula, no links. 6 sheets are very small and one is about 250 rows and 25 columns. Several cells contain a whole paragraph of text, a few of which include line breaks made with Ctrl-Super-Enter.

Further information: a lot of free RAM, few applications running, CPU mostly idle, running under Gnome.

If this happens only in a specific xlsx, please attach it.

Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the document.
