which callout aren't working

On some documents only, I'm not able to visualize the line between endpoint and callcout box.
I've tried to modify properties (color, style, width, etc.) without success.

1. open the document
2. click on line callout (any of "line callout")
3. place de line callout : 2 yellow points are present to show where should be the line

However, "callouts" icon works fine (see attached picture)

Comment 3 Regina Henschel 2018-11-24 16:37:52 UTC
I can reproduce the problem with your document in Version: (x64)
Build ID: 9e55c8c7ffc43004ca314edcd4712dcc29adf933
CPU threads: 8; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: GL; VCL: win; 
Locale: de-DE (en_US); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

I cannot produce the problem with a new document.

It seems to be somehow connected to the TOC. If I delete the TOC, the leg of the callout is visible, if I insert the TOC again, the leg of the callout vanishes.

TOC = Table of Contents

Removing and newly inserting the table of content does not solve the problem for this document. I have tried that already. But because I could not reproduce the problem with a new document, it might help, if you make a new document and transfer the content from the old document into it. First load the styles from the old document, then copy and paste the content. If that does not solve the problem, try it without preserving the styles.

bisected with bibisect-linux-64-6.1. Lots of crashes when place callout during bibisect, and it looks like crashes started with  (14.3.2018)
and  crash is fixed with   (20.3.2018)

Before crash is callout correct and after crash is callout with bug.
