Comment 2 Bartosz Bartczak 2013-06-27 10:39:17 UTC
Yesterday was write file.ods in Libre office.
Now can't open this same file.ods in Libre Office.

Now I'm repaired broken file:
1) edit file content.xml
2) remove all line form "<table:tracked-changes>" to "</table:tracked-changes>".
3) save file content.xml
4) zip all file
5) change name repair.zip to repair.ods
Now file repair.ods working properly in LibreOffice.

But my friend tell mi try open broken file.ods (who any verion libre can't open) in apache openoffice 3.4.1.
This is the tenth case when LibreOffice damage my image in the past few months.
I prefer Apchae OpenOffice becouse it't many stable that Libre Office.

Best Regards

Please try to eliminate confidential information according to https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/FAQ#How_can_I_eliminate_confidential_data_from_a_sample_document.3F and save your document again. If it gets broken, then please attach it here. Bug cannot be fixed without a test case.

Comment 9 Jorendc 2013-12-29 21:20:25 UTC
Doesn't crash anymore, tested using Windows 8.1 with LibreOffice Version:
Build ID: 5be7ec4193b892e5643ff5f3f2e6755319569190
TinderBox: Win-x86@39, Branch:master, Time: 2013-12-27_23:55:02

Looks like the patch is only applied in 4.2.0, not in 4.1-branch.

@Markus: any chance this is going to happen?
