Description Kevin Suo 2021-12-20 10:38:18 UTC
Steps to Reproduce:

1. New Calc, then New Writer.

2. In Calc window, click "Format > Conditional Formatting > Condition". The conditional formatting dialogue appears.

3. On this conditinal formatting dialogue, click the dropdown list of "Use style", then select "New Style".

4. Switch to the Writer window. Then switch back to the Calc window.

--> The conditional formatting dialogue disappears, and Calc hangs (the hang may be because it is waiting for the conditional formatting dialog to close).
Now it is possible to close the Writer window, but you are not able to close the Calc window. The only way to make it back to normal is to kill the soffice process.

During testing you may sometimes encounter a crash when you switching the window back and forth in step 4, but I do not find the clear steps to make it crash.

For me even "Kill in Task manager" is not killing the Calc window.

Query <https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/buglist.cgi?cmdtype=dorem&remaction=run&namedcmd=DUPs146332&sharer_id=19321> seems not to show an obvious DUP

(In reply to Roman Kuznetsov from comment #4)
On current master (and in 7.4 branch), switching to the Writer window and then switching back to Calc conditional formatting dialog, the Conditional Formatting dialog remains there, but the Cell Formatting dialog (i.e. the dialog from where you previously switched to the Writer window) disappears. Also, at this point you still can not do anything on the Conditional Formatting dialog, the dialog freezes there, you need to kill the process.

As a result the problem still exists.
