Description sheepmud 2015-01-22 20:20:25 UTC
Highlight two adjacent columns (I used 3 rows).  Text in left column. Right column empty (tried it with numbers, same result). Insert>name>create (checked 'left column' is default). Enter. and then...

SPREADSHEET CRASHES.  Eventually times out to "stopped responding" error (after hitting the 'close' X) and have to close, losing any unsaved updates.  The recovery, upon re-opening, works. Tried it a few times; always same result.
Comment 1 sheepmud 2015-01-22 20:31:09 UTC
An update...it seems to specifically crash when the letter 'R' is in the left column (what I want the right value assigned to as a name). Weird... I haven't tested other values.  I know the letters 'V' and 'I' both do not crash.
Comment 2 Eike Rathke 2015-01-22 22:17:07 UTC
Not a crash, but freezes (endless loop).

R and C are special in the R1C1 address reference syntax and can't be used as names and would be adjusted to _R and _C. The check triggers an endless loop though..
