Description Bojan 2014-07-07 12:06:35 UTC
Problem description:

In addition to my previous report I found the following. The LO and the OS freeze to death in one particular situation. If all the characters to be checked-out or crossed are regular characters everything works fine and no freezing occurs. However, if a character is a special character, such as a box from Opensymbol and/or ordinary font set, the LO and the OS freeze if you try to cross/check it out.
Operating System: openSUSE
Version: rc
Last worked in: release

I can't also reproduce this one with - Ubuntu 12.04 x86.

If this bug is in addition to Bug 81001, please mark this bug RESOLVED INVALID and add the additional info to Bug 81001.

The reference to a "previous report" is in relation to this forum thread:


Details previously reported in the thread:

> Everything worked fine. Now, with LO 4.3 the same procedure results in LO to

> I tried same action several times, every time same result.

Sounds like issue may be font-related (I have not tested it). An example form would help determine this.

Attached is sample file from Bug 81001. Maybe I misunderstood, I still can't reproduce the bug.

Dear Bojan,

If you can supply us a file that we can test your bug against, that would be helpful.

test file

Here is the test file that Bojan emailed me but i forgot to attach and below is the email test. I tested the file in 4.3 and master and wasnt able to reproduce the issue.


Dear Philip,

Attached is a file causing the problems. Some of the check-boxes are marked yellow, although all of them behave the same way. Please be noted, LO freezes on all my Linux machines, PC and notebook.
