Spreadsheet app crashes after trying to convert a cell of text, to columns of data using menu item Data -> Text to columns...
1) Open a new spreadsheet.
2) Copy the following text: 02/17/2013 15:05:09 18546
3) Paste text into a cell (Ctrl-v)
4) Select from menu: Data -> Text to columns...
Crash. Application disappears.
Info: soffice.bin was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
The one cell of text converted to two columns of data: Column 1 would be date and time; Column 2 would be the numeric value 18546 (from example above).
Build Date & Platform:
Gnome desktop Version 3.6.3
Fedora 18, kernel: 3.8.4-202.fc18.x86_64 #1 SMP
LibreOffice Fedora Build ID: 188.8.131.52-8.fc18
Additional Builds and Platforms:
Also occurred with a previous recent build of LibreOffice.
Note: Issue originally discovered when copying data from a web page, then using EDIT -> Paste Special, to paste and convert to column data and properly format the date field. Have narrowed issue down to the "Text to columns..." menu function.
Can't reproduce this on Ubuntu 64 with master and LibreOffice 4.0.1
MichaelH: could you give a try to a newer version? Last 3.6 version is 3.6.6 and last 4.0 version is 4.0.2
I opened a bug report with Red Hat they determined it was related to a gtk2 theme that I was using (Bluecurve). I changed back to the default gtk theme Adwaita and now pasting data does not crash the application.
MichaelH: thank you for your feedback, I just update the status to NOTOURBUG
