Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2011-06-26 23:27:27 UTC
Created attachment 48452 [details]
Sample document, pls see original report!

I saw that with a Daliy Build nearby "LibreOffice 3.4.1RC1  – WIN7  Home Premium  (64bit) English UI [OOO340m1 (Build:101)]".

Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Open attached "DeleteStackSample.odt"
2. Type additional "a b c"
3. press undo button 1x
4. Click some times the links in the index
5. Menu 'Tools > Update > All'
   Expected: more or less nothing
   Actual: Undo / Redo icons greyed out, stack empty

Additionally Green Navigation arrow icon and undo icon become greyed out, what seems to stay that their stacks became empty. But the effect is temporary, when you click somewhere into the document the Green arrow reappears.

The reported effect also is visible with menu 'Tools > Update > Indexes', but not with 'Tools > Update > Fields'
The effect is not reproducible if the document does not contain an index.

Since all new unconfirmed bugs start in state UNCONFIRMED now and old unconfirmed bugs were moved to NEEDINFO with a explanatory comment, all bugs promoted above those bug states to NEW and later are automatically confirmed making the CONFIRMED whiteboard status redundant. Thus it will be removed.

reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

one more remark: the attachment in the Attachments Section is not possible to download due to a missing file type, only the attachment in the Comments Section is possible to download

You don't even need to click on any links.  An empty TOC and right click Update/Index Table does the trick.

Confirming this bug:
Build ID: 1:6.0.6-0ubuntu0.18.04.1
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
Locale: en-GB (en_GB.UTF-8); Calc: group

As noted before, Tools > Update > Fields doesn't empty undo-redo stack, all other methods (Tools > Update, as well as right-click and selecting 'Update index') do empty the stack.
