I can reproduce.

You can also use the Navigator to bring up Navigation (disappears on selecting index) and use Next Index Entry in the Navigator to experience the crash.

I got nothing with Linux under valgrind
Comment 4 Joel Madero 2015-05-31 22:23:18 UTC
Can someone explain where "next index entry" is? When I bring up navigator - it opens and shows "IndexEntry (active)" in the bottom drop down. For the life of me I can't find "Next index entry" Thanks!

In Navigator, after you have changed to Index Entry in Navigation dialogue, the Next Index Entry is fourth icon from left.  There are the two page looking icons with up and down arrow before the number spinner box.

Toggle - Navigation - Previous index entry - Next index entry

This is really confusing for me - I don't get that option. Image of what I see: http://i.imgur.com/vSWWhyp.png?1

You can see the label of the 4th icon for me....
Comment 7 Gordo 2015-06-01 09:43:44 UTC
I think you might have it on repeat search which is the icon to the left of Index entry in Navigation.  It goes to that when you reach the end of the document on finding text.

I do not know if typing in individual names of indexes in the find box works with next element.

1. Open document.
2. In Navigator, click on "Navigation", which is the second icon from the left.
3. Click on "Index entry" in Navigation dialogue.
4a. Here you can use the arrows and it will crash or
4b. Close the Navigation dialogue and in Navigator use the arrows (3rd & 4th icons) and it will crash.

1. Open document.
2. Open Find toolbar with Edit -> Find or ctrl + f.
3. Click on "Navigate by".
4. Click on "Index entry" in Navigation dialogue.
5a. Here you can use the arrows and it will crash or
5b. Close the Navigation dialogue and in Find toolbar use the arrows to the right of "Navigate by" or
5c. If Navigator is open, use the arrows (3rd & 4th icons) there and it will crash.
