Re: [orca-list] Multi line cell content in Libreoffice calc freezes orca


After updating to orca master a few minutes ago, I can see this is working fine for me with both Gnome on X and Gnome on Wayland. I don't know what was causing those freezes on my system, however I have tested with Gnome on X literarly 2 minutes before upgrading orca and it stil froze for me. After updating orca I see no freezing and multi line cells like these are reading fine in libreoffice calc.

Hi Peter.

I was not able to reproduce Orca freezing. For instance, Orca still
presents the Calc File menu. That said, I was able to reproduce Orca not
speaking the cell content and have fixed that in both master and the
gnome-3-22 branch. Could you please pull and confirm?

I think I have finally figured out what causes orca to hang in
Libreoffice calc.
My original issue is that when arrowing in a spread sheet, orca
sometimes freezes and it is no longer possible to get any feetback from
the Calc main window. Child dialogs such as open / save file are working
fine when inwoked through a keyboard shortcut.

Here are steps to reproduce:
- Make sure orca is running
- open an empty Libreoffice calc document
- Notice you have landed in cell A1. Press F2 to change the value of
that cell.
- Type a word, then press ctrl+enter to make a new line inside the cell
content, enter another word and hit enter.
Orca freezes and it is no longer possible to navigate over the cels in a
spread sheet.
The same thing happens when there are other multi line cells in a spread

Is there a fix or a workaround for this?
