Description Robert Simpson 2018-08-24 10:00:19 UTC
When text is pasted into a text box, overwriting existing text, and using 'Paste Special-Unformatted', if the overwritten text comprises more than one line, then impress hangs. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create new impress file
2.create a textbox and enter text with more than one line
3.select the text
4.copy the text (or any text, say text from a .odt)
5.with text in textbox still selected, 'Edit-Paste Special' and select 'Unformatted Text

Actual Results:
impress freezes requiring a 'force quit'

Expected Results:
text in textbox should be overwritten

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Normal Paste, or other forms of Paste Special do not cause the problem.

Delete the existing text before pasting the new.
(But it's a bore)

editviewoverlay: corrected AttributeChange
EditView on Overlay visualization needs to handle
selection change when e.g. FontSize attribute of
a selected text portion changes. Changed handling
so that selection overlay is an integral part of
text visualization overlay and refreshing text
visualization always refreshes selection visuals,
but not the other way around. Both anyways check
for real change, so just extra testing is avoided
which is still the better solution
