Writer hangs when I delete a line of text, anywhere in the document. Occurs every time now (worked before in same file), anywhere in the file. I see nothing unusual when using the show formatting marks.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.backspace through text to beginning of line, and once more onto previous line
Cursor backs up to end of previous line, Writer hangs. CPU usage goes to 100%. Eventually get the LibreOffice warning that it needs either a force-quit or wait. Force quit allows recovery next time I launch, but problem recurs.
This was working fine as I edited this file over the course of months, but now I am stuck. Fails wherever in the file I delete a line, even in places I previously did so.
Allow continued operation.
User Profile Reset: Yes
OpenGL enabled: Yes
CentOS 7 on a Sony VAIO. Seems limited to only a few files I am working with, each in the 1.5 meg range size. Each, as with other files that do not crash it, has both Hebrew and English scattered throughout, but the hang seems unrelated to where I am working. Reproduceable every time with the same files. Same occurred on Writer 22.214.171.124 with the same files (then I upgraded, but same result).

Working in 126.96.36.199.
I added 3 blank lines before the latest hang point in the doc, and could then delete one of the "problem" lines. I deleted at that point the 280+ pages before this, and am able to work, hoping I will be able to tie together two halves of the doc once all editing is completed. I am using no fancy characters, just English and Hebrew character sets spread throughout.
Sounds like a pointer problem/buffer overrun somewhere.

Try to backspace out that blank line on page 3 near the bottom

No idea, but here I can’t reproduce the issue without Frank Ruehl CLM installed, so may be try installing the font then testing with old LibreOffice versions.
I'm repro this already in
No issue when copy/pasting the text to a new document
Dear Hal Miller,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa
Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
