Description Snarky 2013-09-16 03:22:38 UTC
Hello, I am trying to use Draw for creating pictures having large number of simple objects, up to several thousands of them per file. To give you some idea, think of the games of go or checkers. 

Yesterday I was able to keep several such files open at the same time (I knew if I opened too many LO would die with generalized diagnostics message). 

Today, after installing the latest Windows update, I found that I could hardly open only one of those files. Attempting to open a second one at first I saw an empty window with moving green progress indicator bar. At some moment the window would silently disappear. 

The moment of disappearance apparently depended on the size of the open file. I found that I was able to open two small files. The bigger was the first file, the sooner the process opening the second file would die.  

I have the latest JRE (1.7.0_40). Increasing LO memory settings did not change a thing.

I can now tell that the same thing happens as I add the objects to the drawing. I just had two open files. I copied around 200 objects at once and tried to past them. The window silently disappeared (the second one was left intact).

Comment 3 Snarky 2013-09-17 21:30:58 UTC
Just reset Draw template to default one, opened new file and created 1000 0.12" filled circles (changed the filling color from the default one). Arranged them into rectangle 25x40. 

Copied and pasted the whole thing 2 times - that's 3000. It worked. Pasted one more time, tried to save. Got "LO has stopped working" (from Windows). Successfully recovered (all 4000) circles, was able to save and reopen the file correctly. 

Opened new Draw page, copied and pasted another 1000 (5000 total count), tried to save - LO died with the same Windows message. Recovered, and the new page was not there.

I have Thinkpad W510, Windows 8/64, fully updated. LO Version:
Memory settings:

Number of steps - 25

Use for LibreOffice: 200MB
Memory per object: 1.0MB

File size (compressed, attached) 30K.

And, once again,I started having this problem in and it became strangling after the latest windows update.
Comment 4 Snarky 2013-09-22 02:11:16 UTC
The problem may have to do with my shapes (circles). I receiver some 30K objects file from another user and was able to handle it. The shapes were rectangles though. 

After I found that Write was not pasting "too many" Draw objects too, I tried 4.1.2 and it was not any better. I returned to 4.0.5, which works.
Comment 5 pierre-yves samyn 2014-06-20 14:23:34 UTC

I reproduce the freeze on windows 7/64 & Version:
Build ID: 881bb88abfe2992c6cede97c23e64a9885de87de

But I do not reproduce with Version:
Build ID: 67f5430184326974072b65403ef1d9d934fc4481

1. Open the attached file
2. Edit> Select all
3. Edit> Copy
4. Select Slide 2
5. Edit> Paste

Can you test this release ?
I set status to NEEDINFO...

Slightly different behavior on the Mac.

I was able to take the test file, copy, paste, and save, but had LOO freeze and go unresponsive when I tried to quite. I was able to force quit. I found that the sample document had retained the saved changes after reopening.

I just lost an hours worth of work, which I thought I had saved, when Loo crashed on me.

I don't know if that was the same bug, or something else.
Comment 11 MarjaE 2016-04-29 22:08:16 UTC
I don't think it was the same bug. I re-did the above work, finished the drawing, and saved several times along the way. I re-opened it to check something didn't change anything, and had LibreOffice hard freeze on quit. So the bug I'm encountering isn't linked to repeated copying and pasting.
