Copy and paste text from TM doc files causes TB to crash

Post by matteo » Thu Dec 10, 2009 11:52 am

This is an odd bug I found out. If I copy some text from a .doc file in TM with ctrl+c, when I try to past it in an email message in Thunderbird, doing ctrl+v causes TB to close instantly.

Awkward isn't it? :shock:

ps same thing doesn't happen if I copy and paste from other applications...

I'm not 100% sure but I think that we already had that or a very similar problem in the past. What Linux distribution and thunderbird version do you use? Does it happen with every TextMaker file you copy text from? Can you send us an example file please?

Thanks, I've informed our developers to investigate this issue. Please note that there will be no more Service Packs for the Office 2008 for Linux but it should work better in SoftMaker Office 2010 for Linux and you' ll receive the free upgrade then.

Please have a look at this thread http://www.softmaker.com/diskussion/vie ... 442#p43442

There's a bug in Thunderbird. They probably has been fixed it in November, but not yet released a new version.
