I am having an issue with OpenOffice Writer that I think I've pinned down
to CompPad. When I have CompPad enabled, I can repeatably get the following
to cause a crash:
- Paste an image/graphic into an existing Writer document. The image is
from the clipboard and is a "snapshot" from a raster PDF.
- Hit the save button (document has already been named, it is not new).
- OO crashes/hangs during the save process. The status bar stalls
somewhere that is not repeatable. Usually it crashes gracefully and tries
to recover the next time it's run.
When I disable CompPad, I have not problems. I've only had this problem
since I installed CompPad. The document does not have to have any equations
in it for this to happen. CompPad only needs to be enabled.
I am glad that I found CompPad and I've used it numerous times in the
couple of weeks that I've had it installed. But I need to be able to insert
graphics into my documents on a regular basis. I'm hoping that there is a
Is this a problem for anyone else?
Windows XP Pro
OpenOffice 3.3.0 Build: 9567
CompPad 0.3.03 (although I did install from the current 0.3.04 link, it
installs as this version)

I have similar crash when saving the docuemnt after I have copied a
table from Calc spreadsheet to Writer.
Unfortunately I have nothing useful to add :(

I hate to pile on, but I've had this problem for a while, but I didn't
know CompPad could be the problem.
I can confirm that this happens on Linux and Windows with LibreOffice
(and I want to say it happened with OpenOffice, too. Goes away with
disabling the add-in.
The workaround that I have been (at least for various kinds of pictures)
is to save the picture to a file, and then Insert...Picture...From
File... and that generally works. It will occasionally cause crashes,
too. But not nearly as often as pasting.
Even though I know all of this, I still keep CompPad enabled and use the
workaround. It's that useful. What a great add-in!
