Crash during Advanced Search in comments

Post by David.P » Fri Mar 27, 2020 11:12 am

Hi forum & Tracker Support Team,

I just noticed that PDF-XChange Editor crashes when I enter a search term into Advanced Search that consists of more than one word, where one of the words has only one letter, see the example in the screenshot below:

The crash occurs when search proximity is set to larger than "Only Adjacent Words".

If "Include Comments" is deselected in the Search options (for example, when searching in "Page Text"), the crash does not occur. This means that there is a problem with searching within comments. If other search terms are used, particularly if they do not contain a one-letter word, the crash will not occur either.

Also, the problem doesn't occur with all documents that contain comments, so it could be related to the presence of a certain type of comment. An example of a file where the crash occurs is attached below.

Thank you for investigating what is causing this issue.

Best regards
David
