Description palmierivinc.ent 2015-09-12 17:44:44 UTC
To reproduce the bug:

- Create a new spreadsheet with LibreOffice Calc;
- Keep the cell A1 empty;
- Fill the cells A2:A30 with some formulas, for example =1
- Select the column A;
- Go to Data > Text to column, select the column "standard", and in Field, choose the type of column "text".

Behavior: Calc hangs a little and then crashes. It works properly if there are few enough formulas (< 10).

I'm quite sure I had the same problem with version
Comment 1 MM 2015-09-12 20:20:53 UTC
Unconfirmed with v4.1.6.2 under mint 16 x64.
Confirmed with v4.2.6.3 under mint 16 x64.
Confirmed with v4.4.5.2 under windows 7 x64.
Confirmed with v5.0.2.1 under mint 17.2 x64.

Set to ALL, Regression.

The column type doesn't have to be set to 'text', any other option (except for 'hide') will do, to crash it.

Indeed, it's a dup.

The behavior changed with :

There is no crash (thanks for that), bit the first N empty lines disappear and the last N lines with a formula are staying formulas instead of text, as i expected.

Should i open a new bug report ?
