Description Matthias Seidel 2019-02-10 20:01:42 UTC
I get a crash in Writer when trying to link frames with AOO 4.1.6 on ArcaOS (OS/2).

Steps to reproduce:

 - Create new Writer document
 - Insert a frame by choosing "Insert - Frame" from menu
 - Accept the defaults by clicking "OK"
 - Leave the frame selected and click on icon "Link Frames" in toolbar


 - Crash

Expected behavior:

 - You should see a mouse pointer indicating that you cannot link a single frame

In fact you need at least two frames but even then the crash occurs.

The main problem seems to be that the two pointers




are broken. In fact they have only the size of 16 bytes.
Comment 2 Matthias Seidel 2019-02-10 20:17:33 UTC
I fixed the two broken pointers (and several other) in trunk with

Merged to AOO42X with


Merged to AOO417 with


I hope this fixes the crash.

I Cc-ed Yuri for information
Comment 4 Matthias Seidel 2019-02-12 17:50:56 UTC
I forgot to mention that after clicking on "Link Frames" the mouse has to be moved to the document area to force the mouse pointer change.

Then the crash occurs.

After building the current 4.1.7 branch I can confirm that the crash is gone and the correct pointer is visible.
