Hi,

I'm working with 3.3p1 on a new spreadsheet, and very often when I copy/paste a single cell (with just text), NeoOffice hangs (with the big b/w spinning cursor and the color beach ball) and I have to force quit and loose a lot of changes.

Logs and ods files attached. It is not reproducible at will, but it happens sometimes when for example selecting E19 and then pasting into E20.

Kind regards,
Ben

Thank you for the samples of the NeoOffice process. All through show exactly where the deadlock is occurring.

I will investigate what is causing this particular deadlock. When I have a possible fix, I will post a test patch with my fix that you can try.

Patrick

I think that I have fixed this hanging bug.

Can you install the following test patch and tell us if this hanging bug is fixed for you?:

The problem still exists. I think I have found a reliable way to reproduce it:

- Open the ods file I sent.
- Go to cell E19, press Cmd-C to copy
- Cursor down to E20, Cmd-V t o paste
- Press Enter to edit the cell (I have turned this on in options: Press enter to switch to edit mode.)
- Add some text to the end. (Note: for some reason I have to press enter twice before it goes into edit mode. This wasn't the case in earlier versions.)
- Press Enter again to exit edit mode.
- Go to cell E21
- Press Cmd-V
- Hangs.

Kind regards,
Ben

Can you give me a new sample? The location of the hang should at least have changed.

Thank you for the sample. Also, I can now reproduce the hanging with your steps on my Mac OS X 10.6.8 machine.

As for your note, that is not true. Pressing twice is required in all versions of NeoOffice that are based on Novell's Go-oo 3.1.1.1 code so this has been normal since NeoOffice 3.1.1 which was released in early 2010.

Novell's Go-oo project was the predecessor to LibreOffice so you will also see this same behavior in all versions of LibreOffice.

It no longer crashes, but the second Cmd-V it doesn't paste anything anymore. Like it's lost its pasteboard. I can do multiple Cmd-V's in different cells but as soon as I edit one, the pasteboard is empty.

Ok, it was my feeling this was a recent change Confused No problem.

That is normal in NeoOffice as well as all versions of LibreOffice.

Novell's engineers modified the OpenOffice.org code so that using the "Press Enter to switch to edit mode" preference clears the pasteboard contents.

Ahh, ok. That is also new to me. Don't like it, very counter-intuitive. Sad

Many thanks for the quick fix of the crashing problem!

Best regards,
Ben

Unfortunately, while we wish we had the time to fix the many unintuitive behaviors in OpenOffice.org, our very limited revenue only provides enough funding for one engineer. So, this limits the current scope of the NeoOffice project to keeping a stable version of OpenOffice.org running on the most recent Mac OS X versions and fixing OpenOffice.org feature bugs fall outside that scope.

FYI. I have included the fix for this crashing bug in NeoOffice 3.3 Patch 2. You can download the patch from the NeoOffice 3.3 patch download page.
