Crashing Publisher with 34 bytes

Recommended Posts

Maybe the import function of Publisher wants to make more sense of a file content than it is obviously in it.

I created a small file with an (ancient) editor with the content:

<Heading 1>Überschrift</Heading 1>

saved it as Header2.rtf without being a real RTF file and tried to place it with Publisher. Publisher hangs at once.

A working RTF (don't mind the nonsense in it) should read:

{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\deff0\nouicompat\deflang1031{\fonttbl{\f0\fnil\fcharset0 Calibri;}}
{\*\generator Riched20 6.3.9600}\viewkind4\uc1 
\pard\sa200\sl276\slmult1\f0\fs22\lang7 <Heading 1>Überschrift</Heading 1>\par

Hi Joachim,

I've logged this, we should handle invalid rtf files better than just hanging whilst attempting to read them.
