Description Simon Urli 2019-06-21 14:09:59 UTC
Description:
I cannot save some HTML file to RTF. 
I have not been able to identify what part of the HTML makes it failing. 

Note that the HTML file refers to some images: I tried to do the export with and without the images without any difference.
Exporting the file to ODT works fine. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached file export_input.html with Writer (not Writer/Web)
2. Save as RTF document


Actual Results:
The save process seems to never end and a growing tmp files is created. It can go up to 4 Go where I decided to kill the process. 

Expected Results:
The doc is properly saved as an RTF document


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

This zip files also contains the pictures that the HTML refers to. The bug can be reproduced without it, but I originally obtained it with them.

Confirmed with Version: 6.2.5.1 (x64)
Build ID: 9a940173fab1747f02322bc89779759d52b3a086
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: GL; VCL: win;

and with current master (tested attachment 152345 [details]).

Code pointer from debug (I don't plan to work on this, so hopefully this saves a few cycles to whoever fixes this): MSWordExportBase::WriteText never finishes, with m_pTableInfo->getNextNode(pCurrentNode) returning node 354 for current node 359, creating infinite loop.

Hi Mike,
I tried with: instdir/program/soffice --headless --convert-to rtf /home/xisco/Baixades/export_input.html --outdir /home/xisco/Baixades/output/

and it claims:
Error: no export filter for /home/xisco/Baixades/output/export_input.rtf found, aborting.
Error: no export filter

How can I export the HTML to RTF ?

You need to add "--writer" to the command. See Bug 40186 and my comment there.
