Re: [tdf-discuss] Bug in Contour Editor - Writer 4.0.2


Hello,

For your problem with the contour editor in Writer, I think you should
file a bug report.  The easiest way is to use the Bug Submission
Assistant <https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/bug/>.  Please add me
<lo_bugs@iseries-guru.com> to the report, and I shall try to confirm
your report.

Terry,

Hi: 

This bug in the contour editor is apparently new in the 4.x version,
since I've used this quite a bit in earlier versions and never had
an issue.

When attempting to set a contour, everything goes ok until
attempting to "finish" the selection, at which time the entire app
crashes and disappears. The "check mark" icon never becomes
clear/active, so the problem seems to be in the closing of the
polygon. Nothing happens to the document that I can tell, and it
seems to get recovered with no issues.

I've confirmed this with images are in .png and .jpg formats if that
matters. I didn't try this with anything other than polygonal
selections.

I went back and looked at a few graphics that I had placed and
contoured in earlier versions (same document) and the contour
definition that had been previously set seems to still be honored. I
did NOT, however, go into the contour editor because I was afraid of
screwing up the layout.

Thanks.

Hi: 

I'm using 64 bit Ubuntu 12.04 and recently updated LibreOffice to
4.0.2.2, and I hope I've been sending these reports to the right
place.

Today I attempted to delete a table, which I have always done by
placing the cursor in the table, then using the menu sequence "Table
| Delete | Table" but when I tried to do that with 4.0.2.2, and
chose the "Table | Delete" menu option, everything was greyed out
and I couldn't do it. I ended up selecting the table as well as the
paragraph markers above and below it to delete it.

I'm assuming that Writer knew the cursor was in the table because
the Table Tool bar appeared as usual when I entered the table.

I used the Ubuntu software center to install this version (and yes -
I removed the earlier version I was using first), so I assume I'm
not using a pre-release candidate or anything, but I seem to be
encountering more "anomalies" than usual with Writer (I've sent
three possible bugs to this address in the past few days and believe
I've only sent in one or two in the past couple years). Is there any
sort of "sanity check" I should be running to insure the stuff I
have is ok?

Also, by the way, I've noticed that Writer tends to bog down and
stop for a while in large documents (such as the book I'm currently
working on which is about 350 pages or so), which it didn't do in
earlier versions. Is there some sort of memory management
configuration that's changed that I should know about?

Thanks, by the way, for a great program - I've used countless word
processors - both early stand alone machines as well as personal
software - since the late 70s, and Writer is as well thought out as
anything I've encountered (just don't be like Microsoft and
completely change the interface every couple years or so while
leaving the long-standing bugs in place.)

If you have questions about this report or my recent ones, or need
examples, feel free to contact me.
