Created attachment 164730 [details]
UI file with accessible-description objects in GtkMenuItem

The attached file is the UI file for Accept/Reject changes in Calc and Writer. It contains accessible-description contents in GtkMenuItem objects. LibreOffice master crash when the ui file is used.

Removing accessible-description from 

<object class="GtkMenuItem" id="writeredit">


<object class="GtkMenuItem" id="calcedit">

does not crash the master build.

Comment 1 Julien Nabet 2020-08-27 10:18:12 UTC
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I can't succeed in crashing.
Here what I did:
- retrieved the file
- put it in svx/uiconfig/ui
- built
=> it's now present in ./instdir/share/config/soffice.cfg/svx/ui
- created a brand new file with lorum ipsum + saved the file
- reopened the file
- enabled track changes
- did some changes

Did I miss something?
Comment 2 Caolán McNamara 2020-08-27 10:23:51 UTC
probably missed the "VCL: kf5" piece, this is with a non-gtk backend where we never implemented this accessibility name/description for menu entries loaded from .ui files
