Description Matthew Francis 2013-04-18 05:03:34 UTC
Saving a certain file as .doc / .docx (2007/2010) / .docx (Office Open XML) causes Writer to hang (for .doc) or crash (for the other two filetypes)

@Matthew Francis
General problem with those file types or limited to your sample document?

Worked fine with 3.4.5, so REGRESSION

Still required: tests with what version the problem appeared

All I can tell you is I wasn't specifically trying to torture-test anything. The attached sample is a redacted version of an actual business document I was working with.

After I saw the bug occur, I spent a few minutes paring the problematic file down to the minimum file I could construct that would trigger it, then briefly and inexhaustively explored the set of available output formats to find which others might have the same problem. That's all I have.

I haven't seen anything else like this problem occur except on this one file with the interestingly nested tables - if that was your question

I don't have a bug reference handy but there was a long standing bug fixed a couple of versions back where tables would be corrupted on export to MS formats (and a big thankyou to whoever finally killed that one). Long shot but maybe related?
