Description Robert M Campbell 2013-11-25 14:04:09 UTC
With a fairly large spreadsheet, freezes when trying to change font of single cell, multiple cells, or entire sheet. Spreadsheet used attached.

Hi Robert,

I managed to modify the formats of several cells on different sheets. Fedora 20 - LO4.1.3.2. Then I could save and exit.

Could you recommend a cell to change/font to try?

Ubuntu 13.10 with LO, Build ID: 979f05eee3dafba60f6b93744183035e9cc8be81

Actually, single cell worked for me this time. The problem reoccurred with column C selected. The font box goes blank (I assume that means multiple fonts used), and then when I try to drop down, it freezes.

Will need to check the latest git code and see if it still happens (it's been 2 days - and lots can change).

And just thinking about it, since I am playing with the master git code, is bug reporting the best place to document these issues?

AHA! Now we are getting somewhere.

Sheet1_6 Click on column C (with existing font type Lohit Hindi) and attempt to change the font. The application locks up with 99.1% CPU time BUT it does recover after about 30-60s.

Clicking on an individual cell does not replicate this.

When I click the font drop down after selecting C column in Sheet1_6, I get:
