Start Draw and insert a legacy callout, those from the toolbar "Text", not a custom shape. Press F4 to open Position&Size dialog --> crash.

Xisco, right click on Drawing toolbar->Customize toolbar, enter in field Search word "Callout", in left area Function you will see three items, select simple "Callout" and add it to right Function area (push arrow to right), it will be add to toolbar. Push OK.
Then draw this Callout, select it, and push F4 on keyboard -> LO gives crash

I confirm this bug in
