When editing a drawing, moving an figure or resizing it, Draw crashes. Some of the movements are done with the arrow keys
Steps to reproduce:
1. Make a new drawing file
2. draw a figure like a rectangle with color
3. click on it and do the editing.
4. movin, resizing, rotating, copy, paste
I've used a drawing template and noticed that in the status bar, apears the name of the template, but with % simbols in between words instead of blanks. Don't know if that has someting to do.
It crashes unexpectedly
should perform without abrupt termination
Operating System: Windows 8
Version: 22.214.171.124 release
Last worked in: 126.96.36.199 release
for me not reproducible with LO 188.8.131.52 (Win 8.1) with a new DRAW document without using a template, therefore this is maybe linked to the used template?
Can you reproduce this also with a new document without a template? Which template have you used?

Drawing template with a small image
I have made a new testing template, and done some testing. It happens the same.
Crash after moving an object with the arroy keys.
The template includes a small jpg image in the right corner of the master layer and some empty retangles.
I tested the movement of a solid color rectangle in the master layer, with no problem, so i deleted the figure.
Then changed to the normal view and draw a solid rectangle. selected it with the mouse and move around with the arroy keys and crashes.
I'm sendind attached the testing template.
to reproduce, download the template, then double click to create a new draw file from the template.
Draw a solid figure, (by default) and then move it with the arroy keys, up and down. keep arrow key pressed, and then suddenly freezes, and then crash.
I have made new testing. Created a test2.odg file, with no template, inserting same jpg file in the master layer, then changing to normal view, and doing the same operatios, causes the program to freeze and then crashes.
Then refreshed my user profile, and done the same operations obtaining the same results.
I think it has something to do with the rendering of the jpg file, because right before the crash I've noticed, that the image doesn't apear in the screen.

draw file with an jpg image in the master layer
Not reproducible under GNU/Linux using v184.108.40.206. Possibly Windows-only issue.

Draw file with figure in master layer and jpg in normal layer
I have updated my OS from Win 8 to Win 8.1 with all the updates relevant, and repeated the test with file test 2.odg, with the same results. Test 2.odg has a small image in the right corner of the master layer and some other formatting figures, it is the same content of the Test Template, but is was not created from a template.
When moving the rectangle up or down with the arrow keys, keeping the keys pressed, the image that is in the master layer, disappear, and suddenly Draw freezes and then crashes.
Then I've tested it in Windows XP with the same results. But, at some point of the movement of the figure, it begins to perform very slow.
I made another file Test 3.odg, and in the master layer draw a figure, and back in the normal layer put the same jpg image, and repeated the movement of another figure, and it seems to work well. Tested it in Win 8.1 and Win Xp.
Additionally I've found that when moving the figure to the very top of the working area, when the page view is set to fit width, it resets the page view to the center of the height, leaving the figure selected, but not visible. Changing the movement down returns the view to the top and when it reaches the bottom of the working area, the behavior is different, the view stays were the figure is, as it was before this 4.3.1 release, and this the normal performance. This doesn't happen when Writer is open, as I found, because I use it tho check my orthography.
This happens with Test 3.odg and Test 2.odg
for me this is not reproducible with LO 220.127.116.11 (Win 8.1)
Do you maybe have a friend who has also LO and Win 8/8.1 that you can test it there once more, because for me everything works fine with the attached documents.

screenshot of other laptop with win 8.1
I have renamed the user profile in my laptop, to refresh the installation, and tested it, with the same results.
Then tested it in the laptop of my son, with a new installation on Win 8.1, and obtained the same results.
I’m uploading the screenshots of the crash in my laptop, and the crash on the other one.
All I mentioned in my previous comment was reproducible in the same manner.
It is necessary to remark that the movement of the figures are with the arrow keys, and the page view is set to fit width, with or without the sidebar, so I will repeat the steps to reproduce:
open the file
set page view to fit width
select the rectangle with a mouse click
use the up arrow key to move the figure, and keep pressed until it reaches the top
Notice at this point if the page view resets to the center of the page height.
If this happens, only change to the down arrow key and keep pressed until appears in the screen and keep it until the figure reaches the down end of the working area. The view stays there, as it should be.
Repeat the step to go up back, sometimes it will require to repeat the up and down steps until the problem happens, when it does notice that in the left pane, the image in the first slide disappear, and then the program freezes, the rectangle turns gray, and after a few seconds the program closes, or a windows warning dialog appears, informing that “LibreOffice stop working”.
It is not necessary to set the page view to fit width, it happen also in other views, and with the side bar, or without the sidebar.
I've made the test with the file I uploaded, and with the same file that is my laptop. Same results.

Robert: since nobody can reproduce this for the moment, would it be possible you retrieve a backtrace by following this link? (https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/BugReport/Debug_Information#Windows:_How_to_get_a_backtrace)
Ok. I will try.

This is the backtrace for LO 4.3.3 and the test files
Tested it with LO 4.3.3 released yesterday and the crash still happens.
made the backtrace with windbg and i get a window message:
SEH Exception ACCESS VIOLATION

I also have problems with LibreOffice Draw crash, when moving objects. I have created backtrace with WinDbg, maybe it helps to identify the problem.
I am using LibreOffice 4.3.3 x86 on Windows 8.1 64bit. PC is joined in domain and user profile are stored on server.
The same behavior is with portable X-LibreOffice. I am trying to create network diagram using this extension:
It's the only difference from basic LibreOffice installation.
Putting it at NEW since there's a bt.
Perhaps Windows only bug?
Reviewing this bug with LO 126.96.36.199 in Win 8, no crash is present.
Let's set to WORKSFORME per comment 24.
