Suspect that the problem is not the copy/paste itself, but handling of the embedded calc sheet - attaching such a document.

Moving to NEW as agreed in the ESC meeting

Double-tapping the Calc table in the document in normal Online (built from the same branches, core: cp-6.0 and online: collabora-online-4, I get a crash in the loolkit process.

Interestingly, in a fresh build of the iOS app, I don't get a crash. (But the Calc object does not behave like it does in desktop LO either.)

Bug 123741 is actually related here.
Comment 7 Jan Holesovsky 2019-09-27 07:36:45 UTC
The comment 6 should have mentioned bug 116685, sorry.
Comment 8 Jan Holesovsky 2019-09-27 07:43:46 UTC
Nicolas: The crash should be fixed by the commit from comment 5.

I wanted to go further and fix the fact that we shouldn't be creating an embedded object in the first place, but a normal table (see bug 116685), but Tor says that the fix for the bug 116685 does not fix it for iPad.

I suggest to close this bug 127673 that reported the crash, open a new equivalent of bug 116685 for iPad separately, and assign it a prio as you see fit.  Does that work for you?
Comment 9 Nicolas Christener 2019-09-27 08:55:38 UTC
Hi Kendy

Thanks for looking into this and also fixing the crash!

I agree that we can close this bug and then add a new equivalent of bug 116685 for iPad separately. Should I create that one or do you wish to create it with all the relevant information?

Thanks a lot,

Nicolas: Thank you!  If you can create one & assign it a prio in your sheet that would be great, Tor or me will add the relevant info into the bug.

And I'm closing this one :-)
