Calc crashes every time I use "Find"

Postby manoman » Sun Nov 22, 2020 3:44 am

I am able to open my Calc files, but every time I use the "Find" tool in the top toolbar, Calc crashes. The Recovery option is presented, and I OK thru it and the Calc file opens again, but if I use "Find" again it crashes again. I changed my User file to Userold to reset my preferences, but that did not fix the problem. I have attached one of my Calc files that exhibits this problem.

Thanks for any help.

This is a well reported problem.
Some people have posted that searching in the opposite direction works.
The only thing that has been found to work, is to use the Find & Replace dialog (Ctrl+f), instead of the Find tool.

How do I "search in the opposite direction"?

In Find and Replace, drop More Options and check "Backwards"
