Problem description: Data Auto Filter Crashes the Spreadsheet App. I have never been able to use this feature without the application crashing. Have not had a chance to raise the issue before.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open blank spreadsheet
2. Type a few values into some cells in the same column
3. Select Data|Filter|AutoFilter
4. Select a value to filter on
5. App Crashes
Current behaviour: Yes
Expected behaviour: It doesn't crash
Platform (if different from the browser):
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_7_4) AppleWebKit/534.57.2 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.1.7 Safari/534.57.2
I could not reproduce this on 126.96.36.199, Win XP Sp3.
I every day use Autofilter hundreds of times with "LibreOffice 188.8.131.52. German UI/Locale [Build-ID: 7122e39-92ed229-498d286-15e43b4-d70da21] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit).
Might be a DUP of Bug 47275
Please attach a sample document
Thanks Rainer! Yes your were correct. Turning off the Universal Access resolved the issue.
So let's mark this a DUP, what increases importance of a FIX there
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 47275 ***
Unfortunately, now that this works, My TextExpanded App won't run. TextExpander uses the features of the Universal Access feature.
So my next question is, do we have a fix that allows the AutoFilter to work while Universal Access is enabled?
Please follow bugfixing process in "Bug 47368 - Many crashes when accessibility enabled on MacOS X"
Mac Accessibility Related Bugs Survey Results
I am currently doing a survey about all bugs which are related to Mac OS accessibility features. In the case of this bug, no action is necessary: it is correctly marked as a duplicate of bug 47275, which is really very similar, and when/if bug 47275 will get fixed, the present bug will be fixed, too.
So we can let the present bug stay marked as a duplicate of bug 47275, and don’t need to handle it separately.
(However, the “Steps to reproduce” in the current bug are much better than the description in bug 47275 -- thank you, Damien! --, and therefore we should use the “Steps to reproduce” given here also for the handling of bug 47275.)
