Sample Project To Show the bug


i need to find striked out Characters in a Cell. In my Cell is a String containing "320 338 350". " 388" is striked out and has a blue color.

My code breaks when trying to retriev the Font(richText.getFontAtIndex(i)) with i==2. At i==2 the Font changes from a the rich text font(getFontAtIndex is returning a Font) to the cell font(getFontAtIndex should return null).

for (int i = richText.length() - 1; i >= 0; i--) {
    Font f = richText.getFontAtIndex(i);
    if (f != null && f.getStrikeout()) {

I attached a sample project. Run the unit test

I put in a simple fix via r1701382, you can verify the changes with a recent nightly build or the upcoming 3.13-beta2.
