Description Rick Loll 2019-06-20 11:14:14 UTC
This occurs when transferring from Google Translate, using large 5000 character regions. 
It often happens when I use the [] characters.
If I highlight Arabic area of the text using the mouse, the program freezes with the blue circle, then crashes.
The font I use is: Noto Sans Arabic UI
The occurrence rate is about 10 crashes in a 100 pages. 

The workaround it to use smaller selection, until I've narrowed down the crashing text, then cross my fingers, and hope it doesn't crash again. But when I highlight the bad spot with the mouse wipe, it crashes. If I do end to end click highlight, it doesn't crash.
