Project Note text paste crash #467
From danielfr...@gmail.com on May 02, 2012 17:37:18
Pasting an amount of text over 999 chars into the Project Note window causes Reaper crash (Stack Buffer Overflow)
Tried to paste in an amount of text into the Project Notes window, in order to follow along whilst tracking a voiceover recording and to help with editing. Result: instant Reaper Crash.
On further investigation, this doesn't happen when pasting <= 999 characters but every time when pasting 1000 characters or more.

dang! sorry for the trouble but i can't repro here.. neither ow win 32bit nor 64bit. 1000 char is nothing, when I paste 26Mb it is ok here, the text is cropped (like REAPER does with project notes too).

Thanks forgetting back to me so quickly, and for the awesome set of extensions! I know the worst bugs to find are the non-reproable ones, but it is extremely consistent behaviour for me at least.
Here's a screencap gif of the error happening on a brand new project, along with the text from which I copy/pasted. Exact same thing happens with existing project. Task Manager running on my desktop shows I have over 5GB of physical RAM spare, so I doubt I'm running out memory! This literally happens every time I paste any text of more than 999 chars into the project notes window.
Pasting the exact same text into item notes work without a hitch though, so I can use that as a workaround for now.
Let me know if any other info would help...

OK! Got it!!
the size of pasted data does not matter but the length of lines does, it crashes if > 2ko.. will be up to 8ko in the next build (and won't crash if greater ;-)
Thank you for the very detailed report.
