Description nemeth.lacko 2010-02-22 16:33:35 UTC
Double clicks on cross reference fields for invisible (View → Non-printable
characters is off.) hidden text with other fields freezes OpenOffice.org.
Test file is attached.

[I have found a method to get automatic conditional texts in cross-references
for picture/table etc. variables solving partially a real problem of Hungarian
language: definite article of Hungarian has two forms (a/az), like English
indefinite article a/an, and cross-references need an automatic method to select
the correct article, eg.:

see picture 5 = "lásd *AZ* 5. képen"
see picture 4 = "lásd *A* 4. képen"

Using special references of this bug report, for the picture/table number
(unfortunatelly, not for the page number of these pictures/tables) I got a
working solution. But a double click on a cross references freezes OpenOffice.org. ]

MRU->OS: not even double clicking the reference but also placing the cursor in
the point where the hidden reference field is set and opening "Edit.Fields" will
lead to a crash in OOo. Use the attached sample.
Comment 3 nemeth.lacko 2010-03-25 23:07:18 UTC
I have released a new extension (Hungarian cross-reference toolbar) based on
this feature: http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/en/project/hunart

I hope, it will be a default extension of the Hungarian OpenOffice.org
distribution in the near future, but it depends from this issue, too.

set target to 3.3
Comment 5 nemeth.lacko 2010-04-08 14:59:40 UTC
I have made a new version from the Hungarian cross-reference toolbar
(http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/en/node/3912) with two fields in the
cross-references instead of the problematic one, so this issue is no longer so
important for us. Thanks, László

It seems, the bug is platform specific. T. J. Frazier cannot reproduce it with
OOo 3.2.1 under Windows Vista. But the problem still exists under Linux with OOo
3.2.1.
