Description metalcated 2014-08-29 12:25:17 UTC
When using Writer and I right click or CTRL+C to copy any type of text from a document in a protected text area of the document, Writer crashes. 

kernel: [1074604.991354] soffice.bin[14821]: segfault at b0 ip 00007ff93d22e49b sp 00007fffc7c0ca20 error 4 in libswlo.so[7ff93ce16000+df8000]

Please attach a document with protected text area. Setting to NEEDINFO - once you attach set to UNCONFIRMED and we'll try to confirm it. Thanks!
Comment 2 metalcated 2014-09-04 21:53:07 UTC
I am unable to share the specific document due to policy from my employer. I tried to copy the section from the document and change the wording but that does not reproduce the issue. It seems to only happen inside this specific document and I know it is protected text inside of MS Word because I cannot copy or even select the text inside of MS Word.
