Description Nguyen Tien Trung Kien 2014-12-22 09:54:49 UTC
- Create a new document by Libre Office.

- Typing some context, about 1.5 lines, now there are 2 lines displayed:
"sakjfhadskjfhadskj fhkjasdh fkjashdk"

- At the beginning of the first line, add some spaces:
"    sakjfhadskjfhadskj fhkjasdh fkjashdk"

- Place the caret at the beginning of the first word:
"    |sakjfhadskjfhadskj fhkjasdh fkjashdk"

- Press Ctrl Shift Left to make a selection.
- Press Delete.
- Press Ctrl-Z, then Libre Writer will hang up and display some strange context: "br0ken...".

On which Linux distrib are you?
Would it be possible you give a try to last stable LO version 4.3.5?
Comment 2 Nguyen Tien Trung Kien 2014-12-23 02:55:29 UTC
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

It is not too convienient for me to test with latest stable version. I've tried `sudo apt-get upgrade libreoffice-writer` but it doesn't work. If possible, please tell me the way to upgrade it in proper way, then I will try.

You can add LO ppa to your repositories, see https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/ubuntu/ppa
