i have had a repeatable crash in L4 ver 4.2a Sr3

had a Word doc which i saved as an HTML file. Then opened it in FireFox to ensure that it was indeed an HTML file and it did. Then i copied the URL and pasted it into the Add URL box. L4 crashes at this point when clicking on the blue arrow. This is repeatable.

URL file: 1805.Doc in Windows Internet Explorer.htm

Hi Steve

Just to say that I can reproduce this on 4.3 Beta 1

Thanks Graham!

Maybe you could post a Bug/Crash report in the Beta forum and reference this post. It might get more attention.

I can reproduce this. As a workaround, click "... a file" on the Add menu, and select the file in the dialog box that appears. Most versions of Windows let you paste the file:/// URL right into the "File name" text box in that dialog and will interpret it correctly as a local file.

Thanks Bradley

I can confirm that this workaround works on 4.3 B1

Thanks Bradley, i am glad that ya'll are able to reproduce the problem. i will keep the workaround in mind, i used the clipboard method after the crash (also realized that i needed to add an 's' to my abbreviations).

just for the record: I can reproduce the error under Windows 7.

I can't confirm the workaround, though, as trying to add passages from a file or from text in the clipboard does not work at all on my machine (but works perfectly on highlighted text within Logos), but it doesn't crash the program.
